Fostering Computational Thinking: Computer Modeling Homework in Introductory Mechanics
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 5:15 PM -6:00 PM
  Author: Michael Schatz, Georgia Institute of Technology
(678) 500-9133, michael.schatz@physics.gatech.edu
  Co-Author(s): Marcos D. Caballero , John B Burk , Matthew A Kohlmyer
  Abstract: Introductory physics courses typically fail to provide students with significant opportunities to use a computer to solve science and engineering problems. We present an overview of recent work to develop laboratory and homework exercises on numerical modeling, simulation, and visualization for students in introductory mechanics in both high school and large enrollment university courses.
