This Lecture: Starting with a deck of cards tossed into the air, explore the key concepts of matter, energy, and entropy, which are the building blocks of the physical universe. Study examples of these phenomena, and see how they are demonstrated by the behavior of the airborne cards. The Course: Discover how the immense variety of matter - stars, mountains, plants, people - is made by a limited number of elements that combine in simple ways.
