The MOOC you’re taking suggests some college-level prerequisites? Have no fear.
Maybe you took the required math and science courses in college, but that was longer ago than you’d care to admit…and the details have gotten hazy. And maybe some parts didn’t fully sink in the first time around.
You just need a trustworthy resource for review, whether it’s a quick reminder on a few points, or a complete run-through.
You need this content right now, on demand, and built for self-paced learning.
You need MIT OpenCourseWare.
We’ve got videos, course notes, problems with solutions…everything you need to shake out those cobwebs, jog your memory, fill in the gaps. And if your MOOC inspires you to keep learning, look to OCW for more free learning materials, always available, on thousands of topics.
Here’s a selection of OCW resources most likely to help with MOOC prerequisites.
- 18.03SC Differential Equations
- 18.06SC Linear Algebra
- 6.041SC Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability
- 8.01SC Physics I: Classical Mechanics
- 8.02SC Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism
- 8.03SC Physics III: Vibrations and Waves
- Both 5.111 Principles of Chemical Science and 3.091SC Introduction to Solid State Chemistry satisfy MIT’s core undergraduate chemistry requirement.
- OCW’s Introductory Programming course list has several great options, depending on your background, time, and specific language desired. 6.00SC Introduction to Computer Science and Programming is consistently OCW’s most visited course, and is taught in the popular Python language.
