Course on Scientific Computing (with Mathematica)

“Computing” has become an important mode of exploration in many fields. At Drew University, I’ve been offering an introductory, practical course on scientific computing with Wolfram Mathematica, which is also used in other courses (e.g., calculus, physical chemistry, mechanics, math physics, etc.). The main goal is to expose students to various things technical computing software package can do. The prerequisites are calculus and introductory physics. The example of coupled oscillators is used repeatedly throughout the semester.

This poster (presented at the NJEDge annual conference last year) shows some examples of topics.

Here are the Mathematica notebooks (as pdf) for each topic. (I am also happy to share homework assignments and their solutions with other instructors.)
