9:00 – 12:00 Teaching Computational Skills with MATLAB
The increasing availability of low-cost computation means that every student has an opportunity to learn data and algorithm exploration, analysis, and modeling techniques that were simply not accessible 20 years ago. Physics and other natural sciences have increasingly embraced computation as a tool to explore theory and analyze experimental data. As today’s students prepare to enter the workforce, they will increasingly be expected to have computational skills. In this talk, we present tools, techniques and examples for incorporating computational modeling and data analysis into the curriculum.
