Abstract Title: Implementing Computation Across the Curriculum
Abstract: Modern physics research is built upon the three-legged stool of theory, experiment, and computation.  Computation has become a crucial component of research but is often not included in physics curricula outside of a computational physics course.  I will discuss ways to intentionally incorporate computation across introductory and advanced courses.  I will also discuss some of the potential pitfalls and how to avoid them.
