THEMES | DESCRIPTIONS | STEM CONCEPT Video Titles | related COURSES |
---|---|---|---|

Communication | Successful professional communication begins with the ability to analyze situational variables and make strategic decisions. | ||

Conservation | In order to analyze or modify a system, it is important to understand how the laws of conservation place constraints on that system. | ||

Derivatives and Integrals | Derivatives describe the dependencies of change in a system. Integrals help quantify changing properties. | - 8.02SC Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism

Differential Equations | Differential equations model changing properties in engineering systems. | ||

Equilibrium | To determine whether or not a system is at equilibrium, we must understand how a system's equilibrium state is constrained by its boundary and surroundings. | - [Not Available]

Information Flow | This video is part of the Information Flow video series. A system is shaped and changed by the nature and flow of information into, within, and out of the system. | ||

Linearity | Many complex systems are modeled or approximated linearly because of the mathematical advantages. | ||

Probability and Statistics | Many events and phenomena are probabilistic. Engineers, designers, and architects often use probability distributions to predict system behavior. | ||

Problem Solving | Scientists, engineers, and architects must devise solutions to open-ended problems with technical and non-technical dimensions. | - 8.01SC Physics I: Classical Mechanics
