Concepts in Computing
Concepts in Computing provides a clear, concise introduction to the fundamentals of computer science. The author generates excitement, curiosity, and enthusiasm in students and leaves them with a desire to learn more about the fascinating world of computing. The text identifies the important relationship between computing and the disciplines of engineering and mathematics. It focuses on the three important areas of Software/Programming/Design, Computer Systems/Architecture, and Theoretical Foundations. It is clear that students learn faster, and retain and integrate knowledge more efficiently, if they see how each subject area connects with, and is interdependent upon others. Concepts in Computing sets a solid foundation for introductory students and is a useful companion to those entering introductory programming courses.
