Dear MathGroup,

We're looking for suggestions for introducing and teaching  
mathematica to students in a first year physics course. The students  
would use mathematica as a tool in working homework problems and in  
doing some lab work. Our tentative strategy is to have small mma  
notebooks that cover limited topics available for the students as  
they tackle specific problems.  Has anyone tried this approach or,  
for that matter, anything else?  We'd be interested in finding out  
what you're done, what works well and what doesn't, and in any  
teaching material you'd be willing to share (notebooks, problems  
built around mma, etc.).

Thanks for your help.
