Top 14 MIT OpenCourseWares (#1-5)

The moment you've all been waiting for: the top 5 MIT OCW's:

5. Chinese I (Regular), Spring 2006
Lectures: None
Readings: Free online textbooks and .mp3 files
Study materials: Flash cube study tool, three sample exams

Although there are no lecture videos or notes, this course stands out for the great free textbook and audio pronunciation files. Additionally, through a downloadable study software, you can test yourself. Students might also want to check out Knuckles in China-Land and some of the Chinese language-learning sites we've looked at.

4. Symmetry, Structure, and Tensor Properties of Materials, Fall 2005
Lectures: Video/Audio
Readings: All readings provided
Study Materials: Problem sets

From the MIT site description - "This course covers the derivation of symmetry theory; lattices, point groups, space groups, and their properties; use of symmetry in tensor representation of crystal properties, including anisotropy and representation surfaces; and applications to piezoelectricity and elasticity."

3. Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (Spring 2005)
Lectures: Audio (see below), very detailed notes
Readings: Free online textbook and links to other related free readings
Study materials: iCampus, projects, 2 exams with answers

One of the first core courses for undergraduates studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The site uses a free textbook and very detailed lecture notes containing the power point presentation and more than 20 pages of notes per lecture. Additionally, through iCampus, you can listen to audio lectures and you can use a variety of tools to test yourself online (it's a bit tricky to find the lectures, you need to link to iCampus under other resources and sign-up for a free account). The OLS discussion group is more active than most.

Lectures: Video/Audio, most lecture notes, lecturer bios
Readings: All readings provided
Study Materials: Sample student projects, image gallery

I guess the reason why the louis vuitton handbags named after the famous French theater is that besides their same classic Louis vuitton bags but modern appearance they have the same mission to bring life to the artistic heritage of Europe. The Odeon Theater carries forward the culture of opera and film while the Odeon GM bag promotes the culture of artistic design and louis vuitton Brand. Oscar Deutsch entertains our nation, but lv fashions our nation.

If you are determined enough and really, truly want to own a Coach Outlet , then you are just steps away from having what it is you want. The first step to getting discounted Coach Madison it to go online. The second step would be to look for sites that offer Coach Hamptons that are in your shopping budget. If you don't know how to do that, then I can help you with that, also. I know of a great place that offers Coach Wristlet , shoes and accessories for not just a few dollars less than retail, but hundreds less.
