The special theory of relativity illustrates the fact the nature is stranger than we could have imagined. It is fundamental physics with many important applications, while also being surprising, counterintuitive, and fun!

We will explore Einstein’s revolutionary theory using T. M. Helliwell’s text Special Relativity, through online “social annotation” of the text, mini-lectures, and in-class discussion and problem-solving.

This course is a standalone module in the Models of Motion program. Contact the faculty to find out additional details and the required signature needed to take this as a 4-credit module in that program.
