44342.24 Ocean Wave Interaction with Ships and Offshore Energy Systems (13.022)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=591464
The subject introduces the principles of ocean surface waves and their interactions with ships, offshore platforms and advanced marine vehicles. Surface wave theory is developed for linear and nonlinear deterministic and random waves excited by the environment, ships, or floating structures. Following the development of the physics and mathematics of surface waves, several applications from the field of naval architecture and offshore engineering are addressed. They include the ship Kelvin wave pattern and wave resistance, the interaction of surface waves with floating bodies, the seakeeping of ships high-speed vessels and offshore platforms, the evaluation of the drift forces and other nonlinear wave effects responsible for the slow-drift responses of compliant offshore platforms and their mooring systems designed for hydrocarbon recovery from large water depths. This course was originally offered in Course 13 (Department of Ocean Engineering) as 13.022. In 2005, ocean engineering subjects became part of Course 2 (Department of Mechanical Engineering), and this course was renumbered 2.24.Calculus

Highlights of Calculus is a series of short videos that introduces the basic ideas of calculus — how it works and why it is important. The intended audience is high school students, college students, or anyone who might need help understanding the subject.In addition to the videos, there are summary slides and practice problems complete with an audio narration by Professor Strang. You can find these resources to the right of each video.This resource is also available on Highlights for High School.About the InstructorProfessor Gilbert Strang is a renowned mathematics professor who has taught at MIT since 1962.

This is a free online course offered by the Saylor Foundation.'Calculus can be thought of as the mathematics of CHANGE. Because everything in the world is changing, calculus helps us track those changes. Algebra, by contrast, can be thought of as dealing with a large set of numbers that are inherently CONSTANT. Solving an Algebra problem, like Y = 2X + 5, merely produces a pairing of two predetermined numbers, although an infinite set of pairs. Algebra is even useful in rate problems, such as calculating how the money in your savings account increases because of the interest rate R, such as Y = X0+Rt where t is elapsed time and X0 is the initial deposit. But with compounded interest, now things get complicated for algebra as the rate R is now itself a function of time with Y = X0+ R(t)t. Now we have a rate of change which itself is changing. Calculus “to the rescue,” as Isaac Newton introduced the world to mathematics specifically designed to handle “those things that change.” Calculus is among the most important and useful developments of human thought. Even though it is over 300 years old, it is still considered the beginning and cornerstone of modern mathematics. It is a wonderful, beautiful, and useful set of ideas and techniques. You will see the fundamental ideas of this course over and over again in future courses in mathematics as well as in all of the sciences, including physical, biological, social, economic, and engineering. However, calculus is an intellectual step up from your previous mathematics courses. Many of the ideas you will learn in this course are more carefully defined and have both a functional and a graphical meaning. Some of the algorithms are quite complicated, and in many cases, you will need to make a decision as to which appropriate algorithm to use. Calculus offers a huge variety of applications and many of them will be saved for future courses you might take. This course is divided into four learning sections, or units, plus a reference section, or Appendix. The course begins with a unit that provides a review of algebra specifically designed to help and prepare for the study of calculus. The second unit discusses functions, graphs, limits, and continuity. Understanding “limits” could not be more important as that topic really begins the study of calculus. The third unit will introduce and explain derivatives. With derivatives we are now ready to handle all those “things that change” mentioned above. The fourth unit makes “visual sense” of derivatives by discussing derivatives and graphs. Finally, the fifth unit provides a large collection of reference facts, geometry, and trigonometry that will assist in solving calculus problems long after the course is over.'Calculus I

This online course comes from the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) by Carnegie Mellon. “The course includes self-guiding materials and activities, and is ideal for independent learners, or instructors trying out this course package.”״Discrete mathematics, also called finite mathematics or decision mathematics, is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete in the sense of not supporting or requiring the notion of continuity. Objects studied in finite mathematics are largely countable sets such as integers, finite graphs, and formal languages. Concepts and notations from discrete mathematics are useful to study or describe objects or problems in computer algorithms and programming languages.״At this point only one of the planned 15 modules is currently available, that on Groups.CSET Online Preparation - Mathematics Subtest I
