Einstein for the Masses: Yale Presents a Primer on the Great Physicist’s Thinking

Who could­n’t use this? A basic intro­duc­tion to Ein­stein’s think­ing – one that assumes no pri­or knowl­edge, just an open mind. In one short hour, Rama­mur­ti Shankar (Pro­fes­sor of Physics & Applied Physics at Yale) breaks down Ein­stein’s the­o­ries and for­mu­las for a lay audi­ence. If this whets your appetite, then you’ll want to down­load Shankar’s free course called The Fun­da­men­tals of Physics. You can down­load it here (iTunes — YouTubeWeb Site), or find it in the Physics sec­tion of our big col­lec­tion of Free Online Cours­es.
