My course is one course as part of a general degree, not a Computational Science degree. |
Our Computer classroom
COMPUTERS in the CLASSROOM
Two different scenarios - large undergraduate anything
and senior Computational Physics.
For the former, need video, web, youtube etc - this is today's topic.
It is hard to teach Computational Physics when you have a large group who are not skilled programmers. Even harder to teach if a few are - will show some of my strategies for this later.
This is not a reason not to use computers, it just means preparation is needed.
For the Computational Physics class - a screen for every student - this is the next two classes, including my approach to have the students learning computing together with the algorithms of Computational Physics.
