Abstract : The course provides an introduction to computer programming for community college students who have taken high school algebra, and it is equivalent to a three quarter-unit course in computer science. All instruction is presented by computer, and a supplementary student manual is provided for reference. The course content resembles that of other introductory courses in computer programming and includes the topics of stored programs, use of variables, input and output control, syntax of algebraic and logical expressions, use of functions and subroutines, conditional clauses, and branching techniques. The instructional system implements under computer control teaching strategies that might be used by a human tutor. (Modified author abstract) Portions of this document are not fully legible.
