Date: February 23 – Computational Modeling Physics First
Leaders: Melissa Girmscheid and Jesse Dykes
In this distance learning module, you will learn how to use the Bootstrap software and the mechanics curriculum to make simulations.
Computational Modeling blends Modeling pedagogy with computer programming to add another dimension to existing models within Physics First. Participants will learn to use the Pyret language as a means of both model development and model deployment within the Constant Velocity unit. This module is intended as a preview of the Computational Modeling in Physics First with Bootstrap curriculum and summer workshop.
