The Computational Science Education Reference Desk (CSERD) features resources to help students learn about computational science and to help teachers incorporate it into the classroom. Computational science involves the appropriate use of a computational architecture or computing environment (a computer, calculator, abacus, dice, or the like) to apply some algorithm, or mathematical method, to solve some scientific application, or problem. This combination of application, algorithm, and architecture results in a model that can be used as a scientific tool. The Resources section of the CSERD site provides a permanent collection of materials developed especially for CSERD, including models (pieces of scientific software), activities (lessons or lesson plans that use models), tutorials (short courses designed to teach a specific topic), applications, algorithms, architectures, and several other categories. The Resources form part of a larger catalogue of computational science items gathered by CSERD from around the internet. The catalogue can be searched or browsed by subject, keyword, education level, audience, and resource type. The record for each item includes a link to the resource, title, brief description, education level, and other information.
