Integrating Computing Throughout
the Physics Undergraduate Curriculum

August 22 - 28, 1993
Carleton College
Northfield, MN 

This five and a half day workshop for ten participants will focus on  
a two-fold problem facing many physics departments today: (1) how to  
take advantage of new opportunities offered by the advances in  
computer technology to explore, improve, and streamline the way  
physics is taught, and (2) how to give undergraduate majors the  
computing tools and skills they will need as members of a  
technological community.  In particular, this workshop will introduce  
participants to two computing tools: Mathematica and C programming.   
Participants will then discuss and develop strategies for integrating  
these tools throughout the undergraduate physics curriculum in a  
coherent and logical fashion.  

The workshop will be staffed by members from the Department of  
Physics and Astronomy at Carleton College.  Expenses for travel, room  
and board, and course materials will be covered by the National  
Science Foundation through the ILI-LLD grant #DUE-9250659.
