Published in the Proceedings of the National Conference on Science in Education and in Life, Lisboa, Portugal, March 6, 1998. Adapted from an online publication at


In the abstract packet for the conference is an article of references about ideas from cognitive studies that help us teach physics (Fuller, 1998). There is also a pamphlet of references to innovative physics teaching programs in the United States and many of those programs have world-wide web sites so you can access information about those programs from Portugal (O'Kuma, 1998).

I want to talk about my research project last year, which I now call "Computer Intensive Physics", but it really started out as paper-less physics.
