The webinar will take place on 12 November 2015 at 16.00 Central European Time in the Scientix online meeting room. After registration, you will receive an email with instructions. NB: Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis!

Webinar outline:

This webinar introduces the numerical method for physics phenomena, at high school level. Several scenarios are discussed where this method can be used with students. The implementation of the numerical method is done using spreadsheets and no programming skills are needed (the webinar is designed for physics teachers and not for IT teachers or programmers). Other implementation opportunities (JavaScript,etc.) are also described, for potential further exploration. The results and experiences of the pilot project are introduced at the end of the webinar.

About the presenter:

Zsolt Vicze is a Scientix Deputy Ambassador for Hungary and maths and physics teacher in an eighth grade secondary school. With his talented and interested students, he started a pilot project to use numerical models. Some of the situations investigated have an analytical solution and some of them not (with high-school maths), for example freefall, movement on an inclined plane with or without drag and friction or rowing across a river, where the distribution of water speed is quadratic.

The numerical models were implemented in Excel Macro and/or in other browser friendly programming languages, such as JavaScript or Python.
