The universe is a dangerous place for us space explorers. To give you a fighting chance to survive the journey, we will discuss some basic mechanics, the law of gravity, astronomy, and other necessary physics. More importantly, since the laws of the universe are written in the language of mathematics, we need to go through some basic calculus (don’t be afraid, my friend) and elementary differential equations (now you can panic a little bit). We will also introduce you with the concept of scientific modelling, and learn to use computer to numerically solve problems (we will not use HAL 9000, for those of you who are worried). By the end of our course, you will be well equipped to apply the new tools to tackle a wide range of problems.
Some of you probably have never learned calculus before. While it could be intimidating at first, you can still do it if you put in effort. Some hands-on examples in our course should get you up to speed.
Now buckle up, and we will get started!
