Abstract Title: Computation in the Physics Classroom: A Census of Instructor Beliefs
Abstract: Computation has become ubiquitous in physics; however, at most college-level institutions, it is under-represented in physics instruction. We conducted ~20 interviews with faculty, instructors, and graduate students, to learn about their beliefs regarding the utility of computation in the physics classroom. We report on the themes gleaned from these interviews.
