We freaking love IFLS

Thanks to the folks over at I F@#king Love Science for the shout out. MIT OpenCourseWare received a record 518,000 visits yesterday, 459,000 of which were new to the site. Welcome, have a look around and let us know what you think!

  1. I was kind of hoping you had remedial math. Like Algebra 1-2, geometry, and trig. I know next to nothing about Math, and it’s the one subject that I’ve had the most trouble with. Still, it’s the only subject that I’d literally Kill to learn. Other than that, the site is Amazing! Thank you for all the hard work that you’ve been doing to help educate the world. We need more schools out there with resources like this.

      • Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any basic math programs on that web site either. It’s no big deal, I’m sure I’ll find the “In Between” math one of these days. I look on High School pages, and I get 4th grade math. I look on college pages, and it’s Calculus or better. It’s getting very complicated to find simple Algebra and Geometry online. Hell, I’m half tempted to just start doing the Calculus and Physics, just to see if it’s even remotely possible to just bypass that other math. (It’s Quantum Physics that I have an interest in, but I can’t get into any college or university with my math scores being what they are.) I honestly can’t think of anything more frustrating than having an IQ over 150, having an insatiable curiosity for mathematics, being able to completely understand even the most daunting of quantum physics problems, and yet I can’t do something as simple as solving for X…
