                       Using Computer Algebra Software
                        To Teach Undergraduate Physics

                      A Leadership Development Workshop
                   at the United States Air Force Academy
                           Colorado Springs, CO

                             July 11-23, 1993

Computer algebra software can symbolically solve equations, integrate,
differentiate, solve differential equations, manipulate matrices and
much more.  Its incorporation into the physics classroom is only just
beginning.  This workshop will provide participants an opportunity to
master a computer algebra program and develop strategies for its
integration into the undergraduate physics curriculum.  Workshop
participants will then be able to lead workshops of their own in local
and regional settings.

Four powerful computer algebra packages will be available at the


Workshop participants may work on either Apple Macintoshes or PC's
(DOS or Windows).  Participants must be college faculty involved in
undergraduate physics programs.

      The workshop will provide expenses and a stipend for all

      The application deadline is March 5, 1993.
