Course Description:
We have learned a lot recently about how the Universe evolved in 13.7 billion years since the Big Bang. More than 80% of matter in the Universe is mysterious Dark Matter, which made stars and galaxies to form. The newly discovered Higgs-boson became frozen into the Universe a trillionth of a second after the Big Bang and brought order to the Universe. Yet we still do not know how ordinary matter (atoms) survived against total annihilation by Anti-Matter. The expansion of the Universe started acceleration about 7 billion years ago and the Universe is being ripped apart. The culprit is Dark Energy, a mysterious energy multiplying in vacuum. I will present evidence behind these startling discoveries and discuss what we may learn in the near future.

The content is slightly confusing, as he begins talking about why we have seasons (first grade-level science) and soon starts expecting you to be able to do integrations for the required homeworks. The class says you only need basic algebra to follow along, but if you already have taken formal physics or calculus education, you will have a much easier time. This is extremely tricky material to learn on your own. If you have a friend who's really good at calculus, use them to help you out understand the formulas or spring for an online tutor.
