American Journal of Physics
written by Edwin F. Taylor
Experience with teaching uses of computers and an analogy between education and nutrition help in reexamining the ways physics is taught, both old and new.  The levels of 16 "educational nutrients" for four conventional teaching modes (textbooks, lectures, homework/exams, and standard laboratory) and five uses of computers in education (Tutorial, Demonstration/Simulation, Modeling Toolkit, Laboratory Aid, and Student as Programmer) are estimated.  This analysis is used to predict some future developments in college physics teaching.
