PICUP: Partnership for Integrating Computation into Undergraduate Physics, is a Local Computational Community Development Project Fostering integration of computational practices into physics courses.

WORKSHOP ABSTRACT In this workshop we will guide participants in discussing and planning how they might integrate computation into their courses. In support of this, the PICUP has produced guidelines for effective computational integration and has developed illustrative materials for a variety of physics courses. We will introduce participants to these materials, which are designed independent of computing environments, but include specific examples that use Excel, Python/VPython, C/C++, Fortran, MATLAB, Octave, Java, and Mathematica. Participants will: examine these computational materials, discuss ways they might adapt them to their own course(s), and will learn about opportunities to receive support by collaborating with other faculty in their local community and in the larger PICUP community.

If possible, please bring a laptop computer with the computational platform of your choice installed.

This workshop is funded by the National Science Foundation under DUE IUSE grants 1504786, 1505180, and 150278.
