John S. Conery Explorations in Computing: An Introduction to Computer Science and Python Programmin ПРОГРАММИНГ. Designed for CS0 and CS1 courses, the book gives beginning students an introduction to computer science concepts and computer programming.Prepares Students for Advanced Work in Computer ScienceA revised and updated version of the author’s Explorations in Computing: An Introduction to Computer Science, this text incorporates two major differences. It now uses Python, instead of Ruby, as the lab software so that students can seamlessly transition from introductory projects to more advanced studies in later courses. Students can type expressions, view results, and run experiments that help them understand the concepts in a hands-on way.Web ResourcesThe Python software modules for each lab project are available on the author’s website. An Active Learning Approach to Teaching the Main Ideas in ComputingExplorations in Computing: An Introduction to Computer Science and Python Programming teaches computer science students how to use programming skills to explore fundamental concepts and computational approaches to solving problems. The book also introduces Python programming, providing students with sufficient programming skills so they can implement their own programs.Practical, Step-by-Step ProjectsThe interactive lab projects in each chapter allow students to examine important ideas in computer science, particularly how algorithms offer computational solutions to problems. In addition, the site provides a lab manual of installation instructions and tips for editing programs and running commands in a terminal emulator. The modules include data files and sample Python code that students can copy and modify.
