This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.

Concise and practical, this text sketches the mathematical background essential to understanding the fundamentals of relativity theory. Subjects include the velocity of light, measurement of time and distance, and properties of mass and momentum.

The first six lectures are devoted to Special Relativity, and the remaining ones to Einstein's General Relativity and Gravitation Theory and to relativistic Electromagnetism. Due attention is given to the critically conceptual side of the subject.
