TEACHING COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS AS A LABORATORY SEQUENCE Ross L. Spencer Department of Physics and Astronomy Brigham Young University Provo, Utah 84602 Abstract The undergraduate curriculum in most physics departments is so full that adding new courses is difficult, but the training of an undergraduate physics student is greatly enhanced by learning computational methods. The standard method of addressing this need at most universities is to offer one 3-credit hour computational physics course, either early on as an introduction, or later, when it can address more advanced problems.
