Course schedule/Required learning

Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Mathematics：Classical projective geometry Learn about the development of projective geometry and understand some of its theorems, such as duality.
Class 2 Mathematics：The shape of the projective plane Investigate the structure of the projective plane over finite fields and the real numbers.
Class 3 Mathematics：Visualizing the projective plane Understand the limitations in visualizing the real projective plane, such as Banchoff's theorem.
Class 4 Physics：Wave equation Explain the relationship between the coupled oscilator and the wave equation.
Class 5 Physics：Properties of wave Solve the one dimensional wave equation with the fixed boundary condition.
Class 6 Physics：Electromagnetic wave, waves in quantum mechanics Derive the wave equation from the Maxwell equation.
Class 7 Physics：Waves in comtemporaly physics Explain the principles of gravitational wave observations.
Class 8 Earth and Planetary Sciences：Earth's Internal Structure as Seen by Electromagnetic Fields Observation of electromagnetic waves can probe the distribution of fluids and magma in the Earth's interior. In the lecture, I will introduce the latest research on the deep structures of volcanoes and seismogenic zones.
Class 9 Earth and Planetary Sciences：Stable isotopes in Life and Planetary Chemistry The history of chemical and biological processes that occurred on the Earth and other planets in the past is recorded in the stable isotopic composition of environmental molecules. In this lecture, the principles and applications of stable isotopes in earth and planetary science and other fields will be discussed. Students will be required to summarize the results in a report.
Class 10 Earth and Planetary Sciences：Physics of planet formation Understand key physical processes governing planet formation
Class 11 Chemistry：Lecture of basic chemistry and advanced research by a researcher Understand the importance of basic chemistry and advanced research
Class 12 Chemistry：Lecture of basic chemistry and advanced research by a researcher Understand the importance of basic chemistry and advanced research
Class 13 Chemistry：Lecture of basic chemistry and advanced research by a researcher Understand the importance of basic chemistry and advanced research
Class 14 Chemistry：Lecture of basic chemistry and advanced research by a researcher Understand the importance of basic chemistry and advanced research

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
