View Resource International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge

\When thinking about visualizing data, some might think of the ground-breaking work of people like Edward Tufte. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is intimately interested in visualizing science and engineering data, and they have sponsored this annual challenge for other interested parties working in this field. Each year, the NSF and the journal "Science" work together to assemble a panel...

View Resource The Basics of Programming Embedded Processors: Part 1

Presented in this series of six articles we will contentrate on high-level programming languages, specifically the C language. High-level languages were once shunned as too inefficient for embedded microcontrollers, but better compilers, more compilerfriendly architectures, and faster processors and memory have made highlevel language programs common.Designing and implementing embedded programs...

Computers in Physics was published from 1987 until the end of 1998. At the beginning of 1999 CIP was merged with IEEE Computational Science & Engineering to create the bimonthly magazine Computing in Science and Engineering. Computing in Science and Engineering is a joint publication of the American Institute of Physics and IEEE Computer Society; subscriptions are available through AIP's secure...

View Resource The Effect of Introducing Computers into Introductory Physics Problem-Solving Laboratories

This doctoral thesis dissertation from the University of Minnesota studied the effects of the computer instruction in the physics classroom. This study examined the effects of introducing a computerized data-acquisition and analysis tool into this pedagogy as a problem-solving tool for students to use in laboratory. Possible interactions with gender were also examined. Overall, the differences...

View Resource The Promise and Peril of Big Data

Some data-crunchers and others are thrilled by the prospect of the growing amount of "big data". According to a recent report, the amount of digital content available on the Internet is approaching five hundred billion gigabytes. This 66-page report from the Aspen Institute asks some key questions about these developments, including "Does Big Data represent an evolution of knowledge, or is more...
