A Numerical Calculus Course as an Early Introduction to Problem Solving.
Deeter, Charles R.
Briefly described is a numerical calculus course which provides (1) experience and practice in programing and the use of the computer in problem solving, (2) intermediate and/or advanced techniques in FORTRAN IV programing, (3) elementary error analysis, (4) programing efficiency, and (5) documentation of programs. The course, designed to fulfill the needs of several departments at Texas Christian University--background for physics, chemistry, and accounting majors, as well as for students who plan to enter graduate study in mathematics--enables the student to experience, early in his training, some of the ways in which computers can be used, and to see some of the considerations which must be taken in using the computer as a problem solving tool.
