# Splash Biography

## EMIL OHMAN, Swedish Yale Physics Sophomore

Major: Physics

College/Employer: Yale

## Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a Swedish student at Yale University currently pursuing an
undergraduate degree in Physics. I enjoy all forms of learning,
especially math and the sciences. My dream is to use these
interests to make a positive impact on the world, hopefully by
contributing to online education and research. Some other
passions of mine are the Swedish sport floorball, good food, and
spending time in nature.

M2011: Bulgarian Solitaire in Splash Spring 16 (Apr. 02, 2016)
Bulgarian Solitaire is a simple game with beautiful mathematical properties. We will begin by just exploring it, and then try to explain what we observe. The rules are simple enough to explain to a six year old, but there are still questions about the game no mathematician has ever been able to figure out. Come learn about the beauty of mathematics! And maybe some partition theory.

S1515: The Quantum World in Splash Spring 15 (Apr. 04, 2015)
Even if you know EVERYTHING about the present you still cannot, by the laws of physics, predict the future. By the "Uncertainty Principle," the better you know where a particle is located, the less you know about where it is going. In fact, particles never have a definite position; instead they are smeared out across space in a "Quantum State." Want to learn more about these statements and the crazy world we live in? Come learn Quantum!

C1376: Calculus and Physics in Sprout Spring 15 (Feb. 14 - 28, 2015)
In this class we see how calculus arises naturally from thinking carefully about the real world. Through concrete examples in physics we introduce the Limit, Derivative, Integral and Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Our primary goal is to gain a vivid intuition for calculus.

S1312: A World of Atoms in Splash Fall 14 (Nov. 08, 2014)
This course will introduce the wonderful world of physics by investigating the properties of the atom to show how they explain a number of things such as heat and gravity. No previous experience is required, but even if you've already taken physics you'll get new perspectives on the things you already know. If you want to understand more about the world around, this is the course for you.

M1313: Calculus and Physics in Splash Fall 14 (Nov. 08, 2014)
In this class we see how calculus arises naturally from thinking carefully about the real world. Through concrete examples in physics we introduce the Limit, Derivative, Integral and Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Our primary goal is to gain a vivid intuition for calculus.

X1040: Swedishness in Splash Spring 14 (Mar. 29, 2014)
Want to see a midsummer sunset in northern Sweden? Too bad, because the sun actually never sets. Did you know that you get paid to go to the free colleges in Sweden? Now you do! Want to know what the word "nordöstersjökustartilleriflygspaningssimulatoranläggningsmaterielunderhållsup pföljningssystemdiskussionsinläggsförberedelsearbeten" means? Come to this class! Under the guidance of a native Swede, you will explore the curiosities of this strange country.

S1041: A World of Atoms in Splash Spring 14 (Mar. 29, 2014)
Want to know what heat, electricity and gravity is? Come to this class! We'll start out by investigating the atom to eventually see how it explains almost everything you see around you. We focus on getting a vivid intuition, so this'll be fun even if you've already taken physics. Are you curious about the fundamental workings of the world? This is the course for you

T832: A World of Atoms in Sprout Spring 14 (Feb. 15 - Mar. 01, 2014)
This series of courses will introduce the wonderful world of physics from a perspective quite different from that of an ordinary textbook. We will begin by investigating the properties of the atom, and eventually see how these properties explain a number of things such as heat and gravity. Most of the topics are part of a regular high school physics course and no previous experience is required. Even if you've already taken physics you'll get new perspectives on the things you already know. This is the course for anybody who wishes to understand more about the world around you at a fundamental level.

S637: A World of Atoms in Splash Fall 13 (Nov. 09, 2013)
This course will introduce the wonderful world of physics from a perspective quite different from that of an ordinary textbook. We will look at a number of things ranging from heat to gravity in an as enjoyable manner as possible. The majority of the topics we will cover are part of a regular high school physics education and no previous experience is required. Even if you have already studied physics you will get new and interesting perspectives on the things you already know. This is the course for anybody who wishes to understand more about the world around you at a fundamental level.

S608: Introduction to Physics in Sprout Fall 13 (Oct. 05 - 19, 2013)
This course will introduce the wonderful world of physics from a perspective quite different from that of an ordinary textbook. We will look at a number of things ranging from heat to gravity in an as enjoyable manner as possible.
