The beauty of Mathematics could never be explained in just one article. Endless, infinite, accurate, experimental, challenging and evolving, mathematics is the only universal language shared in this World. If just a few years ago mathematics was left behind as a matter of choice for careers, today mathematics has infinite uses. From criminology, environment, space explorations, astronomy, economy and technology, mathematics is today the bonding science of the future. When we talk numbers, everyone will understand.

Side by side this great mythical study, another legend comes into the picture. It is also challenging and considered by many one of the pioneer contemporary houses of knowledge, this is the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

If mathematics is said to be hard, studding at MIT is said to be even harder. However, maybe mathematics is not that hard, but needs passion. And maybe studying at MIT is not that difficult but just needs dedication. What if you could study Mathematics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT for free?

MIT has an online site that is titled Open Course Ware. This gateway starts out with the words, “Unlocking Knowledge, Empowering Minds.” From there Triatno Yudo Harjoko, Educator from Indonesia, states that "I was amazed that a university such as MIT would freely give access to its educational information."

MIT provides through Open Course Ware free lecture notes, exams, and videos from MIT. No registration is required. You can find the MIT site at, http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm

Here is how it works

Go to, http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm and click on Find Courses to your left. You will be directed to http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/

Once in the courses page, you will be able to see the amount of knowledge that is given at MIT Open Course Ware. Once you are there, choose Mathematics. Clicking on it takes you http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/#mathematics

This should direct you to a sheet. Don’t be discouraged by new symbols. If you are into mathematics, understanding symbols may be 90 % of the job. Dedication goes side by side. Focus. You can also sign up to be notified on course updates if you want.

In the sheet, or spread sheet, you will find all the topics. From single variable calculus, differential equations, complex variables, mathematics for Computer Science, algebra, advanced calculus for engineers, probabilities and statistics, analysis, Infinite Random Matrix Theory, methods in Nanophotonics, modelling and simulation, to the Non linear Dynamics: Chaos and the Art of Counting, all are Free!

The value of this information is priceless. Take your time. Read the lectures, download the PDF files. Go through the assignments and check your answers with the solutions. Multimedia content, projects and examples are provided as part of the free package. You will find in this MIT free mathematics course everything you need to get started. Images and online text books are included and properly linked. By signing up to monthly newsletters and setting your own schedules you will soon find yourself studying Mathematics at MIT Open Course Ware.
