S1918: Mechanics in Action- Designing a Better World in Cascade Spring 2023 (Apr. 20 - May. 18, 2023)
Electric cars, rockets, and video game consoles -- these are just few examples of technologies that have revolutionized human development within the last century. How do we even begin to analyze these complex systems in hopes of improving them for future generations? Well, application of simple principles allows one to go quite far in understanding the structure, behavior, and limitations of such systems. In particular, Newtonian mechanics provides a very solid framework for gaining insight into complex systems. This course aims to show students how the basic principles of mechanics can be used to break down systems into bite-sized pieces that are easier to understand. By the end of the course, students will have obtained a deeper appreciation for mechanics and how it is used to make sense of an increasingly complex world.

S1892: Thermodynamic Principles and Medical Applications in Cascade 2022 Spring (Apr. 21 - May. 19, 2022)
Have you ever wondered why scientists are able to develop numerous technologies and procedures that advance the field of medicine on a seemingly daily basis? From vaccinations to protein engineering and computer simulations, it seems that the medical world is moving at lightning speeds. Such advanced applications require a deep understanding of the fundamental sciences underlying them. In particular, thermodynamics plays a critical role in the development of new drugs and medical technologies. Starting from the ground up, this course aims to provide students with a robust overview of thermodynamics in physical and chemical systems and how they can be applied to biological systems and medicine. By the end of the course, students will have an increased appreciation for thermodynamics and how it can be applied to so many disciplines.
