HSE Physics,Chemistry, Computer science- Physics: In a volume intended to celebrate Bill Little's many contributions to fundamental and applied research in physics, an article about teaching the most elementary aspects of physics may seem somewhat out of place. But a substantial part of Bill's well-deserved reputation is based on his excellence as a teacher, especially for the introductory courses for engineers and biological science majors. This article is offered in homage to his tradition of excellence in education.
Chemistry: Chemistry relates to each and everything you can sense, from right down to the elemental level to massive complex structures. It deals with how things are constructed and formulated to how they break apart and the energy that is either absorbed or released in each of these processes.The study of the science of chemistry shows us, for example, how the table salt we eat everyday is actually constructed of crystals formed out of sodium and chlorine, and why the Statue of Liberty, constructed out of metallic copper is now green.
Computer science: This course covers the same materials as an introductory class for undergraduate computer science majors. Its curriculum, which includes software, hardware and algorithms, resembles that of a one- or two-semester first-year college course or Computer Science. It does not require a formal computer science background.
