The Good, the Bad, and the Computational: A Discussion on Your Integration of Computation This Semester
How did you integrate computation into your courses this semester? What worked, what didn't, and why? Bring your experiences for a group discussion of the ups and downs of whatever you tried this semester so we can all learn from each others successes and failures.
We met and discussed the semester.
In this meeting, Larry Engelhardt and Kelly Roos will discuss the editorial and review process for materials submitted to the PICUP collection. Join the Strutting Rooster and Lawrence of Florence for what should be a fun and educational meeting.
One advantage of using computational/numerical methods is that problems that would otherwise be too difficult to solve (analytically) are now within reach for undergraduate students. Given this broader array of problems that can potentially be solved -- what are some of the EXCITING problems that students would actually find INTERESTING to solve...without being too difficult for undergraduate students?
February 2018 Virtual Meeting
Todd Zimmerman will share some of his work to integrate computation in advanced lab and lead a discussion around using computation in labs.
Michelle Kuchera presented on pair programming.
We discussed end of course issues and future plans.
