Computers in Undergraduate Education: Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, and Chemistry.
Lockard, J. David
This is the report of a conference which was initiated by the National Science Foundation's Office of Computing Activities and which explored and summarized current thinking about the role of the computer for undergraduate curricula in the physical and mathematical sciences. The conference focused on deciding which goals of the existing undergraduate curriculum might better be realized using the computer and the extent of revision of present curricula necessary to attain these potential benefits. These were discussed in relation to the subject areas of mathematics, physics, statistics, and chemistry. The discussions emphasized that the computer will alter the curriculum of tomorrow in fundamental ways if educators re-examine the goals of the existing curriculum and begin to actively experiment with this new technology.
