Secrets of Mental Math February 2013 - April 2013 12 lectures The Great Courses
Quick: What's 25 × 45? How about 742 × 300? Or 4821 ÷ 9? Most of us, when faced with math problems like these, immediately reach for a calculator or a pen. But imagine if you could perform these and other seemingly difficult—but surprisingly easy—calculations right in your head. Seems like an impossible feat? It's not. One key to improving and expanding your math potential—whether you're a corporate executive or a high-school student—lies in the powerful ability to perform mental math calculations. Solving basic math problems in your head is a gateway to success in understanding and mastering higher mathematical fields such as algebra, statistics, and calculus. It's a skill that offers other lifelong benefits, including giving you a competitive edge in school or at work; keeping your mind active and sharp at any age; improving your performance on standardized tests; and learning to solve problems by using a variety of methods. Taught by Professor Arthur T. Benjamin, Harvey Mudd College 1) Math in your Head! 2) Mental Addition and Subtraction 3) Go Forth and Multiply 4) Divide and Conquer 5) The Art of Guesstimation 6) Mental Math and Paper 7) Intermediate Multiplication 8) The Speed of Vedic Division 9) Memorizing Numbers 10) Calendar Calculations 11) Advanced Multiplication 12) Masters of Mental Math
Biology and Human Behavior: The Neurological Origins of Individuality February 2012 - June 2012 24 lectures The Great Courses
When are we responsible for our own actions, and when are we in the grip of biological forces beyond our control? This intriguing question is the scientific province of behavioral biology, a field that explores interactions among the brain, mind, body, and environment that have a surprising influence on how we behave—from the people we fall in love with, to the intensity of our spiritual lives, to the degree of our aggressive impulses. In short, it is the study of how our brains make us the individuals that we are. Biology and Human Behavior: The Neurological Origins of Individuality, 2nd Edition, is an interdisciplinary approach to this fascinating subject. In 24 lectures, you will investigate how the human brain is sculpted by evolution, constrained or freed by genes, shaped by early experience, modulated by hormones, and otherwise influenced to produce a wide range of behaviors, some of them abnormal. You will see that little can be explained by thinking about any one of these factors alone because some combination of influences is almost always at work. Taught by Professor Robert Sapolsky, Stanford University 1) Biology and Behavior - An Introduction 2) The Basic Cells of the Nervous System 3) How Two Neurons Communicate 4) Learning and Synaptic Plasticity 5) The Dynamics of Interacting Neurons 6) The Limbic System 7) The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) 8) The Regulation of Hormones by the Brain 9) The Regulation of the Brain by Hormones 10) The Evolution of Behavior 11) The Evolution of Behavior - Some Examples 12) Cooperation, Competition, and Neuroeconomics 13) What Do Genes Do?

Macroevolution of Genes 15) Behavior Genetics 16) Behavior Genetics and Prenatal Environment 17) An Introduction to Ethology 18) Neuro-ethology 19) The Neurobiology of Aggression I 20) The Neurobiology of Aggression II 21) Hormones and Aggression 22) Early Experience and Aggression 23) Evolution, Aggression, and Cooperation 24) A Summary
Understanding the Brain October 2011 - February 2012
October 2012 - February 2013
36 lectures The Great Courses
Everything that goes on inside your body and every interaction you have with the outside world is controlled by your brain. It allows you to cope masterfully with your everyday environment. It is capable of producing breathtaking athletic feats, sublime works of art, and profound scientific insights. It also produces the enormous range of emotional responses that can take us from the depths of depression to the heights of euphoria. Considering everything the brain does, how can this relatively small mass of tissue possibly be the source of our personalities, dreams, thoughts, sensations, utterances, and movements?

Questions of Value August 2011 - October 2011
September 2012 - October 2012
24 lectures The Great Courses
Our lives are filled with everyday questions of fact and finance. Which investment brings the highest return? What school district is the house in? What will this candidate do if elected? But the really fundamental questions of our lives, says Professor Patrick Grim, are questions of neither fact nor finance. They are questions of value. They are the deep questions that apply to every aspect of our lives. What is it that gives something genuine value? What things are really worth striving for? What is it that makes life worth living? Are there values that transcend cultural differences? Can we have ethical values without religion? If the universe operates in terms of deterministic laws, how can there be real choice? Is all value subjective? We can even ask if life is always worth living, or whether in some situations we would be better off dead.

What is the purpose of modeling?  Developing a model for an industrial-strength software system prior to its construction or renovation is as essential as having a blueprint for large building.  Good models are essential for communication among project teams and to assure architectural soundness.  As the complexity of systems increase, so does the importance of good modeling techniques.  There are many additional factors of a project's success, but having a rigorous modeling language standard is one essential factor.

We will wrap up our morning by looking at the applications of Linux – Web/Internet server, e-mail, and FTP, Network File Server, Firewall/Gateway, and RAS server. We will break for lunch, which is the ideal opportunity to get to know the people around you as well as your trainer. Meals are provided as part of your seminar tuition.
After lunch, we will examine practical software applications in the Linux environment. We shall look at server applications as well as workstation applications. We shall then work with the GUI (Graphical User Interface) and this "non-windows" navigation.
We’ll look at Linux – whether it is right for an application, and spend some time discussing integrating it in the heterogeneous network. Our trainer will introduce us to X-Windows and Gnome and we will look at "Linux versus NT – The Final Showdown?" We will wrap up our day with a discussion on Linux resources.
