Analytical Engine : An Introduction to Computer Science Using the Internet  / With CD (ISBN10: 0534391591; ISBN13: 9780534391591)
ISBN13: 978-0534391591
ISBN10: 0534391591

Summary: Rick Decker and Stuart Hirshfield's The Analytical Engine describes the discipline of Computer Science from a variety of perspectives, and gives students--majors and nonmajors--a broad and realistic feeling for what computer scientists do and how they do it. Covering major topics, from history and systems design to software, hardware, and the effect of computing on society, this fresh and interactive study of computer science also develops problem-solving skills. It ...show moredoes so in a hands-on, lab-oriented approach, providing students with both directed and open-ended exercises that allow them to consider a variety of global issues. Throughout this integrated text/CD-ROM/Internet package, the authors encourage students to make connections between specific modules and other disciplines. Overall, The Analytical Engine serves as an excellent model for a contemporary "CS0" course.

Benefits:

  • NEW! Module 5 (re-titled "Computer Programming") is completely rewritten so that it more naturally extends the students' experience from Module 4, wherein they work with HTML, XML, and XSL. In this new module, programming is still based on JavaScript, and still addresses a reasonable spectrum of programming issues, but now revolves around form processing and the Module 4 is extended to provide basic coverage (and supporting lab exercises) of XML and XSL.
  • NEW! Dynamic generation of HTML pages. This allows students see programming in an already-familiar context.
  • NEW! The presentation and the exercises are updated and refined throughout the text.
  • The text supports the lab component by providing background and explanatory material that is better read on paper than on a monitor.
  • The labs provide the interactive, illustrative experiences that bring the material in the text to life.
  • The online and CD materials contain, among other things, hyperlinks across and within modules (concept links) so that students see recurring themes, and external hyperlinks (reference links) to related materials.
  • The Web site includes PowerPoint transparencies of all the figures in the book.
