Bradley University's Physics Department has developed an incremental approach to computational physics instruction. The instructionIt interweaves modern computational techniques with traditional aspects of upper-level classical mechanics and thermodynamics courses, building from simple to more complex concepts and assignments. By directly programming and controlling all aspects of their computer applications, students can best grasp computational principles.
