Faculty Workshop: Jupyter Notebooks in the Classroom
Jupyter Notebooks in the Classroom
Dr. Jeff Mills
Associate Head, School of Chemistry and Materials Science, RIT
Director, Science Exploration Program, RIT
Dr. Jeff Mills (SCMS/ISA) will lead a workshop on using Jupyter Notebooks as a tool for engaging STEM students in computer programming and applications.
Does your class use math, statistics, graphing, data analysis, or simulations? Are you looking for free alternatives to packages like Matlab? Were you aware that RIT has an open resource, called JupyterHub, that provides a convenient way to share and display code and is available to all faculty, students, and staff? This workshop will cover the use of Python and Jupyter Notebooks in a classroom/lab setting. We will look at setting up Jupyter for the classroom, a grading workflow, and example assignments. Experience with Python is a plus but not required as you will be able to follow along and see what possibilities exist. Also, JupyterHub currently supports Python and R.
