This is a regular graduate course at The George Washington University department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The course catalog entry reads:   Aero/Hydrodynamics. 3 Credits. Inviscid flows in two and three dimensions and irrotational flow theory; conformal mapping and applications. Helmoltz theorems and vorticity dynamics. Applications such as airfoil theory, finite-wing theory, panel methods, instabilities, free surface flow.   That short description covers much too much content and it really is not possible to have a 3-month course that will do justice to all those topics. In designing this version of the course, we first asked: what should students of classical aerodynamics know well, that they may build on with future study? The answer we propose is: panel method solutions to flow around lifting and non-lifting bodies.   We will build a solid foundation for panel method solutions, starting with be basics of potential flow, and using computations with the Python programming language to explore classical aerodynamics.   This online space supplements the on-campus course with content, discussions and learning pathways. It is an open learning space. Any interested student or self-learner in the world is invited to learn with us and participate in this space. The course was not designed as a MOOC (massive open online course), but rather we decided to simply carry out our learning in the open. What You'll Learn A foundation in the classical theories of aerodynamics of ideal fluids, as they apply to aerospace engineering design Competency in solution methods and understanding of their approximation power and sources of error
