Open Source Physics: Computational Tools for Teaching
Dr. Mario Belloni
Over the past dozen years Davidson College has produced some of the most widely used interactive curricular materials for the teaching of introductory and advanced physics courses. These materials are based on Java applets called Physlets and the Open Source Physics (OSP) programs and applications. The new Open Source Physics Project has focused on the creation and dissemination of computational and educational tools for teaching. Specific examples of using modeling in intermediate classical mechanics with Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) and teaching other advanced courses (quantum mechanics and general relativity) with OSP-based programs will be shown. How the Open Source Physics Project is connected to existing Digitial Libraries like ComPADRE will also be discussed
