Problem Solving via Pascal, with Data Structures. Dissemination Packet--Summer 1989: Booklet #4.
Greenwell, Raymond N.
This booklet is the fourth in a series of nine from the Teacher Training Institute at Hofstra University (New York) and provides descriptive information about the introductory course in Pascal programing with emphasis on the solving of problems found in the advanced-placement computer science curriculum of secondary school mathematics. Included in this booklet are: (1) the instructor's evaluation of the behavioral aspects and affective observations gleaned from his 3 years of participation in this program, as well as proposals for program improvement; (2) a short appraisal of the program and comments from one participant; (3) the course outlines for each year; (4) a sampler of homework assignments, class notes, and computer programs used in the courses; and (5) the examinations used in the courses with some handwritten solutions. An extensive sample of the instructor's and the participants' course project solutions using Pascal programs can be found in booklet #5 in this series (SE 052 486). (JJK)
