ABSTRACT:
Although physics faculty are incorporating computers to enhance physics education, computation is often viewed as a black box whose inner workings need not be understood. We propose to open up the computational black box by providing Computational Physics (CP) curricula materials based on a problem-solving paradigm that can be incorporated into existing physics classes, or used in stand-alone CP classes. The curricula materials assume a computational science point of view, where understanding of the applied math and the CS is also important, and usually involve a compiled language in order for the students to get closer to the algorithms. The materials derive from a new CP eTextbook available from Compadre that includes video-based lectures, programs, applets, visualizations and animations.
