Event description

Description

Computational Modeling in Physics with Pyret/Bootstrap

Leader: Joshua Rutberg and a team of master physics teachers

Computational thinking is widely recognized as an essential skill for the future workforce and success in STEM. This workshop will explore a variety of ways to integrate computational modeling, the use of computers to simulate and study complex systems, into the Physics classroom to support students’ understandings of (1) qualitative energy, (2) constant velocity, (3) uniform acceleration, (4) inertia and force pairs, and (5) Newton’s 2nd law. The session will be co-led by experienced modeler and physics educator Joshua Rutberg. Josh and a team of master physics teachers will share lessons learned, curriculum planning strategies, and participants will gain access to a full collection of curricular materials developed from previous workshops.


If you are physics or physical science teacher who wants to learn how to integrate computational representations along with graphical, algebraic, pictorial, and verbal representations of physics concepts into research-based Modeling Instruction™ practices then this is the workshop for you. This workshop will also focus on combating many equity concerns associated with student access to physics and computer science. There is no prior programming or Modeling Instruction™ experience required, all are welcome.


This workshop is a collaboration between STEMteachersNYC, American Modeling Teachers Association (AMTA), American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), and Bootstrap of Brown University. Funded by 100Kin10 and the National Science Foundation (NSF).


Schedule:

The workshop will run for 3 weeks July 23 - August 10, 2018 The workshop sessions will be from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Monday - Thursday and Friday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, followed by an optional social hour from 3:30 to 4:30.
