VPython Introductory Computational Physics Documents
Ruth Chabay and
This zip file contains the existing student computational activities developed by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood in the context of the introductory calculus-based physics curriculum Matter & Interactions (Chabay & Sherwood, John Wiley & Sons, 3rd edition, 2011). The 3D programming environment is VPython, which is based on the Python programming language. This collection contains many examples, more than can be assigned in any one semester. Instructors will wish to vary assigned activities from one semester to the next and/or vary initial conditions. These materials are free to physics instructors to use or modify to fit the needs of students.
