    This course is primarily designed as an introductory survey course for undergraduate students– not necessarily physics or astronomy majors– with some background in classical mechanics and electromagnetism, to a pillar of modern physics: relativity. Popular science will be used to motivate and reinforce quantitative concepts by means of often vivid and engaging illustrations, often with a hint of social commentary. Some understanding of undergraduate-level concepts in classical mechanics, electromagnetism, differential equations and linear algebra is assumed.
