Saylor.org is a free and open collection of college level courses. There are no registrations or fees required to take our courses, and you will earn a certificate upon completion of each course. Because we are not accredited, you will not earn a college degree or diploma; however, our team of experienced college professors has designed each course so you will be able to achieve the same learning objectives as students enrolled in traditional colleges.

Numerical methods have been used to solve mathematical expressions of engineering and scientific problems for at least 4000 years. Such methods apply numerical approximation in order to convert continuous mathematical problems (for example, determining the mechanical stress throughout a loaded truss) into systems of discrete equations that can be solved with sufficient accuracy by machine. This course will provide you with an introduction to several of those numerical methods which you may then find opportunity to practice later in the curriculum.

CAD, or computer-aided design, is a powerful modeling tool that technical professionals use. With CAD, architects can draw up building plans and engineers can develop component and system designs. Some CAD programs even allow users to perform stress analysis, demonstrating how well a proposed structure will fare when put to use. This course will introduce you to the process of modeling 2- and 3-D objects with computer-aided design.

Abnormal psychology is perhaps one of the most recognizable and intriguing subfields of study in psychology. Part of what makes this field so intriguing is that it challenges us to define what is normal and abnormal. Most experts in the field have settled on several criteria to define abnormal behavior; however, this definition and even the very existence of certain disorders still remain a source of debate. This course will help us to define abnormal and normal behaviors and to group these abnormal phenomena into “disorders.”

Sensation and perception are the processes by which we absorb information from environmental stimuli and convert it into data that our brains and bodies use to modify behavior. This course will introduce you to these two closely related, though distinct, processes.

The decades between roughly 1890 and 1950 witnessed unprecedented efforts to create new art, new values, and a new culture in Europe and the United States. During this time Western writers, artists, and intellectuals questioned accepted aesthetic norms and produced radically experimental works of art and new understandings of what it means to live in modern times.

The Victorian Period of English history (1837-1901) witnessed a set of complex political, social, scientific, and philosophical developments. These developments were intricately tied to and represented by the culture’s various forms of literary production—most notably the Victorian novel.

The Romantic Period in England took place during the “age of revolutions,” a span of time that saw not only the rapid industrialization of Europe but two significant national revolutions—one in France, and one in America. This revolutionary spirit in many ways fed and sustained the Romantic movement in English literature; its chief practitioners believed that poetry could literally transform the world and the way in which we understand it.

Zoology is the scientific study of diversity of animal life, classification, physiology, behavior, and evolution. Unicellular organisms have evolved into complex multicellular forms. Organisms, both unicellular and multicellular, in various complex shapes and sizes are found in almost every habitat and environment.

The study of dynamic systems focuses on the behavior of physical systems as well as the physics of individual components and the interactions between them. Control systems are designed to enable dynamic systems to respond in a specific manner. In this course, we will learn about the mathematical modeling, analysis, and control of physical systems that are in rest, in motion, or acted upon by a force.
