Student predictions of functional but incomplete example programs in introductory calculus-based physics
Shawn Weatherford and
Computational activities for Matter & Interactions were redesigned to focus student attention to the interpretation and prediction of functional, but incomplete example programs before modifying the program with additional program code. Evaluation of the instructional activities in experimental lab settings reveals student predictions that are based on the expected dynamics of real-world systems in addition to the information gathered through the interpretation of the example program code.
