How does matter warm up?

How does a metal spoon warm up in the sun? There are no discernible changes. In this course, I delve into the specifics of what happens to electrons in matter when there is an increase in temperature. 

The explanations are clearly laid out in simple mathematical terms. 

This course is a foundational course, as it will be used to go over critical concepts that form the base for future courses: Why do materials have different properties? why do solids melt at varying temperatures? and why is water the most versatile matter of all?
