Title: Abstract Applets: A Method for Integrating Numerical Problem Solving into the Undergraduate Physics Curriculum

In upper-division undergraduate physics courses, it is desirable to give numerical problem-solving exercises integrated naturally into weekly problem sets. I explain a method for doing this that makes use of the built-in class structure of the Java programming language. I also supply a Java class library that can assist instructors in writing programs of this type.
