Integrating a Computational Perspective in Physics Courses

By Marcos Daniel Caballero and Morten Hjorth-Jensen

Abstract

In this contribution we discuss how to develop a physics curriculum for undergraduate students that includes computing as a central element. Our contribution starts with a definition of computing and pertinent learning outcomes and assessment studies and programs. We end with a discussion on how to implement computing in various physics courses by presenting our experiences from Michigan State University in the USA and the University of Oslo in Norway.Comment: 22 pages and 2 figure
