What is a Computer?
Ball, Marion J.
This colorfully illustrated book is designed to introduce elementary school students to the world of computers. Computers, their component parts and their capabilities are personified using full page sketches and color drawings. The differences between analog and digital computers are given as is a short history of computer use and development. The terms hardware and software are defined. Simple analogies are used to show how programing is made and how logical sequential steps lead to problem solving. A glossary of terms is included. (MC)
