Physics for Humanists

Modern physics can be a curious beast indeed, and it is "full of ideas that are weird, counterintuitive and wondrous." So goes the introduction to this most engaging online course site provided by the Tufts University OpenCourseWare initiative. The materials come from the course "Physics for Humanists", which was taught by Professor Gary R. Goldstein. As the course notes remark, "Physics for Humanists is intended for those who are intellectually and emotionally curious but do not intend to specialize in the natural sciences." The course site includes a syllabus, calendar, lectures, exams and quizzes, assignments, and lecture handouts. It's a real treat for anyone with a passion for the subject, and even those who might be intimidated by the subject matter may leave with a new-found interest.
