PHY 200 - Computational Physics (= CSC 200)
(Cross-listed as CSC 200) This course is an introduction to computer programming and computational physics using Python. No prior programming experience is necessary. This course will provide studetns with the skills required to write code to solve physics problems in areas including quantum physics, electromagnetism, and mechanics. Structured programming methods will be covered as well as algorithms for numerical integration, solving differential equations, and more.
Satisfies a requirement in the Data Science interdisciplinary minor.
Satisfies the Mathematical and Quantitative Thought requirement.
