Summary

Enliven your CS1 course with Learning to Program with Alice! This six-chapter supplementary text uses Alice, a three-dimensional virtual reality authoring system, to make programming easy and fun for the beginning student. Alice was developed to help teach introductory programming techniques in a less syntax-intensive environment, and addresses some of the barriers that currently prevent many students from successfully learning to program. By introducing core programming topics such as objects, methods, and variables within the context of the Alice environment, students will be motivated to continue their studies in the field of computer science.


Features

  • Intended as a supplementary text for an introductory programming course.
  • Uses Alice to introduce the fundamentals of programming in six chapters, including objects, methods, variables, control structures, array and lists, and events.
  • Includes extensive examples, images, and end-of-chapter projects designed to reinforce and assess skills.
  • Creates a positive first exposure to programming while helping students to grasp object-oriented concepts.
  • Motivates today's visually-oriented students through the use of fun three-dimensional animations.
