Computational Physics for Use in the Undergraduate Modern Physics Course
Topical — 2013
This workshop will give physics faculty the opportunity to explore, modify, and/or create computational materials for a traditional lower division modern physics course. Computational physics provides a third method for understanding physics that complements both theory and experiment. This synergy has become manifest in physics practice and this workshop will extend its presence into physics learning.

Details
Participants will explore computational alternatives to end-of-chapter problems that can be adapted for and integrated into traditional course content and formats.

In addition to helping them understand physics better, students who learn physics through computation are better prepared for their future work. Thus our instructional materials offer new perspectives on physics content as well as use modern computing methods. Please visit our project website at the Partnership for Integration of Computation into Undergraduate Physics (PICUP) web-site (see link below) to see some of our Modern Physics examples. However, we will assist our participants in applying the design principles of our modern physics examples to construct end-of-chapter computational exercises for any physics course of their choice.
