This free online course introduces the theoretical tools needed to appreciate the discovery of the Higgs boson, and presents the elementary particles that have been discovered at the tiniest scales ever explored. Beginning with basic concepts in classical mechanics, the story unfolds through relativity and quantum mechanics, describing forces, matter and the unification of theories with an understanding driven by the tools of mathematics. Course can be taken on demand.
