MathCAD in Undergraduate Physics"
Abstract: A highly desirable goal of computing is insight. For students to achieve this goal, they need software that has considerable computing power, good graphics, ease of use, help support, and is readily debugged. MathCAD scores well in these areas. I will present examples of MathCAD worksheets in a variety of areas to demonstrate the versatility and scope of this software in computing for physics, engineering, and other sciences.
Please join us for light refreshments at 4:15. We hope to see you there!
