The purpose of the present work is to consider some of the implications of replacing, for the purposes of physics instruction, algebraic notation with a programming language. What is novel is that, more than previous work, I take seriously the possibility that a programming language can function as the principle representational system for physics instruction. This means treating programming as potentially having a similar status and performing a similar function to algebraic notation in… CONTINUE READING
