Introduction to Computer Science: Coding is a one-of-a-kind text that introduces younger students to the exciting world of computer coding. It shows students how easy it is to learn coding and is a great tool for encouraging students to pursue additional courses in computer science. Designed for the classroom, this text provides a foundation in the concepts of programming using easy-to-learn, free software: Scratch, App Inventor, Alice, and HTML.
In addition to learning programming, students have an opportunity to make cross-curricular connections with Math and Coding and Science and Coding features along with language arts activities at the end of each chapter. Team-based activities, Cooperative Coding, encourage teamwork while creating coding projects. In addition, problem-solving skills are developed through Coding Conundrum features, which present students with code that must be analyzed and fixed.
