Description
Appropriate for all one-semester pre-CS1 and computer literacy courses, and for integration into the first weeks of many introductory CS1 courses. Alice was designed to make programming concepts easier to teach and learn. In the Second Edition of Learning to Program with Alice, Alice's creators offer a complete full-color introduction to the interactive Alice 2.2 programming environment. The authors make extensive use of program visualization to establish an easy, intuitive relationship between program constructs and the 3D graphics animation action in Alice. Students discover how Alice blends traditional problem-solving techniques with Hollywood-style storyboarding. Fundamental object-oriented programming concepts and language syntax are taught independently. Programming concepts can be taught from either an objects-first or an objects-early approach, with an optional early introduction to events. The book's Java-like syntax allows students to view their program code, simplifying their transitions to Java, C++, C#, or other object-oriented languages. This new edition even allows students to upload their animated programs onto YouTube and share their work on the Web.Instructor's and Student Resources reside at: aliceprogramming.net/> Website Includes: * Solutions * Lecture Notes and Virtual Worlds * Sample lab sheets * Sample exams * Examples of Open Ended Project Assignments * Sample student-built virtual worlds * Sample Course Calendars * Errata * Links to 3D Models * Troubleshooting Please contact your Prentice Hall representative for user ID and password.
