A Note to the Reader
The beauty of being a programmer is that you can 'create'. Think about it: You come up with an idea and use your keyboard for a couple of hours, and a new software project comes to life! Like any new skill, however, programming takes practice. Along the way, you'll most likely make mistakes—but don't give up. Take time to reflect on the concepts and experiment with different techniques until you master them. And then move on to learn something new.
Whom This Book Is For:
- This book is for anyone eager to explore computer science. It teaches the fundamentals of programming, and it can be used as a textbook for middle and high school students or as a self-study guide. The book can also be used at the college level to teach elementary programming concepts to students from different backgrounds or as a companion textbook that provides an introduction to such a course.
- Teachers who want to use Scratch in the classroom can also benefit from the deeper understanding of programming to be found in this book. You’ll develop the skills you need to engage students with Scratch in meaningful ways that are compatible with their needs.
- The book assumes no prior programming experience and, for the most part, no mathematics beyond what is taught in high school. Some of the advanced simulations can be skipped without causing any learning gap.
