Computers in Undergraduate Science Education. Conference Proceedings.
Blum, Ronald, Ed.
Six areas of computer use in undergraduate education, particularly in the fields of mathematics and physics, are discussed in these proceedings. The areas included are: the computational mode; computer graphics; the simulation mode; analog computing; computer-assisted instruction; and the current politics and management of college level computer installations. The participants generally concurred that aside from the high cost of hardware, the major problem is the lack of widely available textual materials that are computer oriented. The conference was held in 1970 and was attended by nearly 400 scientists and college level teachers. (MC)
