MIT: STEM Concept Videos

MIT STEM Concept Videos

A series of 46 videos covering essential (not basic) concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects, produced by MIT and available for viewing and download on the MIT OpenCourseWare site. The videos are designed for first and second year engineering students.

“The STEM Concept Videos, produced by the Teaching and Learning Laboratory [of MIT], are designed to help students learn pivotal concepts in science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM).  Each video is part of a series that represents a cross-cutting theme in the courses that typically appear in first- and second-year engineering curricula (i.e., physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology). The STEM Concept Videos were originally produced for and funded by the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).  SUTD refers to these videos as Concept Vignettes.”

“All materials are © MIT 2012 unless otherwise indicated.”

Topic example: Governing Rules

A small number of rules describe the physical and chemical interactions that are possible in our universe.

12 topics in total, with 46 videos.

Video example: Gravity

The videos state the learning pre-requisites. If you don’t understand the pre-requisite mathematics you may want to “revise” first at one of the online high-school mathematics sites.
