Computer Science: A Breadth-First Approach with Pascalby Paul Nagin
Synopses & Reviews
Provides a solid integration of basic computing concepts with Pascal programming to foster the use of programming as a problem-solving tool. Topics run the gamut from algorithms and artificial intelligence to computer interfacing and operating systems. Every chapter begins with an intriguing photograph and an activity posing a problem to be solved.
Book News Annotation:
An introductory, broad range, or "breadth first" text on computer science. The breadth-first approach, in contrast to the depth-first or programming approach, gives exposure to the essential elements of computing, including machine architecture, algorithms, data communications, complexity theory, database design, artificial intelligence, information retrieval, and software engineering. Programming is integrated throughout the topics as a tool for exploring these aspects of the field.
