8.02 is largely about Electricity and Magnetism and at the heart of Electricity and Magnetism are the famous four equations we call the Maxwell's Equations. Its quite a difficoult course for students and I go out of my way to also introduce many phenomena that they see around them and make those phenomena connect with electricity and magnetism.
