Maine Space Grant: “A Computationally Integrated Physics Curriculum” In this grant, Prof. Julie Ziffer and I are working to integrate computing throughout our Physics curriculum by introducing compuational problems into every course’s weekly problem sets.
Physics 240 & 242: Intermediate Physics Laboratory I & II
MoWe 2:00PM - 4:45PM
This course is our advanced lab where students work in groups to perform some classical experiments in physics. You will learn the basics of differential error propagation, curve fitting, and extensive use of Jupyter notebooks for data analysis using the Julia Language. This is a fun, intensive class that prepares students to write in the scientific genre appropriate for submission to a physics journal, the importance of and how to deal with error propagation, experimental techniques and instrumentation, and how to give a 10 minute conference length talk such as students would encounter at a scientific conference.
Phy 261: Computational Physics
MoWe 12:30 - 14:20 and F 9:30-11:20 Science 290 C-Wing
For the second time, Computational Physics will be taught using the Julia Programming Language. No prior programming experience is assumed. This course is required for all physics majors, and the only prerequisite is Physics 121. Come learn one of the fastest growing and speediest computer languages around!
Tue & Thu: 09:00-11:00 and by arrangement
