Instructors completing this workshop will be able to develop and implement courses at their home institutions based on the module developed at USU. The workshop will introduce the participants to the use of Mathcad, the pedagogy and methods employed in the module, and application of the module to diverse groups of physics students, so that participants can effectively use the module and support it in their own introductory physical science and mathematics courses.

Instructors: D. Mark Riffe and J.R. Dennison are professors in
the Physics Department at Utah State University, co-authors of the Mathcad
version of the Schaum's Outline in College Physics, and co-PI's of a Utah
HETI grant to develop the CD-ROM based module to teach Mathcad to students
in physical science. They have extensive experience in the use of Mathcad
in educational and research environments and have taught the use of Mathcad
to secondary and college teachers in previous summer workshops.
