Differential Equations in Action

It's not an intense differential equations course, and I don't think you even need calculus to understand or complete the exercises. It has a lot of really great, well, explained, fun exercises like computing a gravitational slingshot, computing the spread of an epidemic, then N-body problem, and others. The exercises are solved programmatically, not with math equations.

America's Unwritten Constitution America's Written Constitution

If you're American, you'll likely find both of these courses extremely interesting. What they (probably) taught you in grade/high school was very overly simplified, or just wrong. This is geared toward people who have no background in law. I don't remember there being amazing exercises to do, but there were a lot of mind blowing facts I learned about things the constitution does and doesn't cover.
