Computer Needs for Teaching Physics.
Bork, Alfred M.; Peckham, Herbert
Recently computers have been of growing importance in teaching physics. This paper provides physics teachers and administrators with a basis for institutional planning for computers within physics courses. Different computer uses are discussed including instruction, computation, lecture demonstration and simulation. Different available computer terminals including "batch" and time-sharing systems are briefly described, and estimates are given for levels of use in courses. Final sections deal with auxiliary equipment, language and maintenance. (RB)
