Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Dewey Dykstra
The author deals with two issues in the use of computers in physics instruction: whether the use of computers can, in fact, be justified in physics instruction and, if it can, under what conditions; the use of spreadsheet software as a positive example of conclusions reached from the first issue. The first part of the paper wrestles with the justifiability issue and proposes some conclusions. The second part presents the application of spreadsheet software to physics instruction as an exemplar. The third part presents examples of an approach to using spreadsheets in physics classes that takes advantage of the instructional possibilities of the software.
