A Team Taught Interdisciplinary Approach To Physics and Calculus Education.
Johnson, David B.
The Special Intensive Program for Scientists and Engineers (SIPSE) at Diablo Valley College in California replaces the traditional engineering calculus and physics sequences with a single sequence that combines the two subjects into an integrated whole. The project report provides an overview of SIPSE, a section that traces the project from problem definition to project conclusion, details on the background and origins of the project, a full description of the project, and an evaluation and project results. Appendices contain detailed course descriptions and time lines for all SIPSE courses, lists of labs and joint presentations, and a discussion of the notational, terminological, and stylistic differences between mathematics and physics.
