PHY300 aka PHY308 - Spring 2007
Computational physics using Python
309 Physics Building, 443-5978,
Class times: 12:30pm-1:50 pm
Tuesdays: Physics 106 Thursdays: Physics Cluster 115.
This course is aimed at science and mathematics majors who are
interested in both science and computing. The goal of
the course will be to show how computers
can be used to learn about
scientific concepts and how they can be used as a tool
in solving scientific problems. Our main scientific examples will be
drawn from physics and we will study them using a programming language
called Python. In practice most of our work will use a
extension of this language called VPython which has a simple-to
-use graphical environment.
Final project presentations
These will take place Thursday April 26 and May 1 in Physics 106
You should hand in your final project writeup by Friday May 4
The Final will be Friday May 4 12:30-2:30 pm in Physics 106
