Publication Date 11 Dec 2012
OverviewIntroduction to Computer Science Using Python: A Computational Problem-Solving Focus introduces students to programming and computational problem-solving via a back-to-basics, step-by-step, objects-late approach that makes this book easy to teach and learn from. Students are provided with a thorough conceptual grounding in computational problem solving before introducing them to specific Python syntax, thus giving them the background to become successful programmers in any language. Dierbach also offers students a thorough grounding in imperative programming before introducing them to object-oriented programming. His step-by-step pedagogical approach makes this an accessible and student-friendly introduction to programming that eases students into program-writing through a variety of hands-on exercises.
