Fostering Computational Thinking: Computer Modeling Homework in Introductory Mechanics
  Location: KFC Courts

  Time: 5:15PM - 6:00PM
  Author: Michael F. Schatz, Georgia Institute of Technology

  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.
