Summary
"Awesome Algorithms and Creative Coding explores how computers work and explains how to think in a logical way. The bright and engaging design guides readers through clear explanations of binary code, simple algorithms, and computer language. With real-life examples, students learn about the development of coding using simple decision-making processes. Programming languages that readers can use themselves, including Scratch and LOGO, are reviewed. "Stretch Yourself" features give practical activities to help readers explore and test key principles to help reinforce learning and are not linked to specific software or operating systems. "True Story" features give real-world anecdotes from the world of information technology. "Computer Hero" features look at the groundbreaking scientists that paved the way for digital technology today."--
