    This is a really strange request, but I was wondering if it is possible to download for free some audio only files of maths or physics lectures. The maths and physics would ideally be the sort encountered in the first year of a physics degree. (Content similar to the first few hundred pages of Riley, Hobson and Bence Mathematical methods for physics and engineering for example.).

    Its because I'm gonna be travelling around a lot and I don't like reading the car (whilst someone else is driving).

    Well, (I think!) MIT now video a lot of their lectures, so perhaps you could watch those, or just listen to the audio tracks of those videos- somehow splice them off the video file (I don't really know how this all works!): See: http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Mathematics/index.htm for a general list of their resources. Their AV resources can be found at http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/web/course...tm#Mathematics and http://mitworld.mit.edu/

    Or you could try iTunes U. I'm sure they'll have some stuff! Go to the iTunes Store, then iTunes U will be in the little box on the left. Most (if not all) of the stuff is free

    Also, if you google MIT Maths lecture, you might get some results on Google video. I'm not quite sure whether these resources all link to the same place, or different stuff entirely...

    Hope that helps...!
