OTHER PHYSICS TOPICS
Once they can numerically solve differential equations,
examples from chaos - Henon-Heiles potential for star movement.
(Analytical mechanics - Hamiltonian/Lagrangian not part or everyone's background so they get advance reading on it if needed.)
Boundary value D.E.s - example time-independent Schroedinger equation.
Molecular Dynamics - materials physics examples.
Simulated annealing - Ising model and magnets/telescope examples.
This covers many physics areas and most students identify with at least one. For Molecular Dynamics and Simulated Annealing I use my own educational codes in c/FORTRAN.
