Map-reduce Computing for Introductory Students using WebMapReduce
Professor Richard Brown, St. Olaf College Professor Libby Shoop, Macalester College
This module emphasizes data-parallel problems and solutions, the so-called 'embarrassingly parallel' problems where processing of input data can easily be split among several parallel processes. Students use a web application called WebMapReduce (WMR) to write map and reduce functions that operate on portions of a massive dataset in parallel.

Monte Carlo Simulations: Parallelism in CS1/CS2
David Valentine
Use Monte Carlo Simulations in CS1/CS2 to expose students to parallel programming with OpenMP.

Parallel Processes in Python
Steven Bogaerts, DePauw University
This module is designed for use in the latter half of a semester-long CS1 course. It introduces students to the concepts of forking child processes to do work in parallel and how multiple concurrent processes can coordinate using a shared data queue.
