VPython is a 3D programming language developed for presenting visualizations of physical phenomena. VPython is free and open-source. It includes: the Python programming language, an enhanced version of the Idle interactive development environment, and "Visual", a Python module that offers real-time 3D output, and is easily usable by novice programmers.

Intro Physics Book

I used this book for my intro physics courses and enjoyed the book at the time.  It is not the absolute best physics book, but for intro classes it has a lot of useful information and I have found it useful for a reference when I forget basic physics stuff

Programming language, development environment, and more (Editor: Norman Chonacky)
Date: 10/16/2008
Date Description: ?

This item is a website for a VPython community.
    *  the Python programming language
    * the "IDLE" interactive development environment
    * "Visual", a Python module that offers real-time 3D output, and is easily usable by novice programmers
    * "Numeric", a Python module for fast processing of arrays

Getting to use these tools has an associated "learning curve" for novices to installing software and/or using development environments. I am creating additional resources to provide some perspectives and help for those who find themselves dealing with these issues while trying to get where they can use VPython.
