How does the final velocity on a zip line change when the starting point is raised or lowered by a matter of centimeters? What is the accuracy of a GPS position measurement? How fast should an airplane travel to minimize fuel consumption? The answers to all of these questions involve the derivative.
But what is the derivative? You will learn its mathematical notation, physical meaning, geometric interpretation, and be able to move fluently between these representations of the derivative. You will discover how to differentiate any function you can think up, and develop a powerful intuition to be able to sketch the graph of many functions. You will make linear and quadratic approximations of functions to simplify computations and gain intuition for system behavior. You will learn to maximize and minimize functions to optimize properties like cost, efficiency, energy, and power.
This course was funded in part by the Wertheimer Fund.

This course examines and presents processes of designing and implementing land readjustment in the context of developing countries.
Land readjustment is an alternative land-assembly approach to government compulsory purchase (often referred to as eminent domain) and voluntary market transaction. In the land readjustment process, a public or private agency invites property owners to become stakeholders in a redevelopment project and to contribute their lands to the project as investment capital. In return, each property owner receives a land site of at least equal value in the vicinity of the original site upon project completion. After all properties in the district are assembled, the combined land sites are subdivided to make space for wider roads and other local infrastructure.
The conventional approaches to land assembly are often conflict-ridden. Through this course, practitioners can add another viable option to their toolbox by learning about land readjustment as an alternative approach to urbanization in developing countries.
Land readjustment has been shown to reduce the initial capital requirement for land assembly, discourage holdouts, and minimize massive relocation of existing residents. When applying land readjustment at the right time and in the right place, this approach could mediate a major hindrance of land redevelopment in countries that are facing rapid urbanization.
Everywhere you look today, enterprises are embracing big data-driven customer relationships and building innovative solutions based on insights gained from data. According to IBM, every day we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals, just to name a few. This data is big data.
The demand for storing this unprecedented amount of information is enough of a challenge, but when you add the need for analytics, the technology requirements truly start pushing the envelope on state-of-the-art IT infrastructures. Fortunately, the Open Source community has stepped up to this challenge and developed a storage and processing layer called Apache Hadoop. Add the dozens of other projects integrating with Apache Hadoop and you have the whole Hadoop ecosystem.
The Hadoop ecosystem, along with the data management architectures it enables, is growing at an unprecedented rate, with 73% of Hadoop cluster deployments now in production — a number which continues to rise.
The demand for individuals who have experience managing this platform is also accelerating. According to the IT Skills and Certifications Pay Index research from Foote Partners, “the need for big data skills also continues to lead to pay increases — about 8% over the last year.” Now is exactly the right time to build an exciting and rewarding career managing big data with Apache Hadoop.
This introductory course is taught by Hadoop experts from The Linux Foundation’s ODPi collaborative project. As host to some of the world's leading open source projects, The Linux Foundation provides training and networking opportunities to help you advance your career.
This course is perfect for IT professionals seeking a high-level overview of Hadoop, and who want to find out if a Hadoop-driven big data strategy is the right solution to meet their data retention and analytics needs. This course will also help anyone who wants to set up a small-scale Hadoop test environment to gain experience working with this exciting open source technology.
This course is designed to provide future STEM faculty, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows with an introduction to effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them.
The goal of the eight-week course is to equip the next generation of STEM faculty to be effective teachers, thus improving the learning experience for the thousands of students they will teach.
The course draws on the expertise of experienced STEM faculty, educational researchers, and staff from university teaching centers, many of them affiliated with the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), a network of research universities collaborating in the preparation of STEM graduate students and post-docs as future faculty members.
Are you involved in the development and execution of technical projects and eager to know what it takes to fund a project successfully? Would you like to be more in touch with the latest developments in project finance and able to use these to your advantage? If so, you’re in the right place!
This course will provide you with the fundamental knowledge and necessary tools to create the optimum financing structure for your project and enhance its potential to attract funding.
The approach taken is both theoretically sound and practically relevant. This is achieved by using case studies to illustrate the topics, as well as assignments that give learners first-hand experience in what it takes to put together a financeable project.
At the end of the course, you’ll understand what is required to achieve successful project financing.
Those who work on infrastructure and industrial projects, especially, will need to have a good understanding of how project financing works and how project investors and lenders think and assess the risks of a project.
Projects are increasingly set up through cooperation between different groups of stakeholders such as Public Private Partnerships (PPPs). Project contracts are evolving to facilitate and structure such co-operations, which has in turn led to a range of novel contracts and methods of financing.
This course is a good enhancement course for learners who successfully completed the MOOC Project Management from DelftX. This course builds on the basic knowledge gained in that MOOC, but deals with the financing aspects in considerably more detail.
How can you determine if a proposed real estate development project is socially responsible? Or determine whether the developer used the tools of social impact assessment (SIA), environmental impact assessment (EIA), and public consultation effectively?
This course will teach you how to evaluate a development project and practice socially responsible real estate yourself by applying SIA, EIA, and consultation methods. It is also designed to help students build their own personal theory of what constitutes socially responsible real estate development.
Taught by a professor with more than forty-five years of teaching experience at MIT, using an applied case study method, this course will open new opportunities for real estate developers and urban planners to see how SIA, EIA, and stakeholder engagement are the keys to creating socially-responsible real estate development throughout the world.
