Introduction to Computer Science Using Python - A Computational Problem - Solving Focus
Introduction to Computer Science Using Python: A Computational Problem-Solving Focus,recommended by Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python ( This is not your average Python book I think this book is a great text for anyone teaching CS1 ). With a focus on computational problem solving from Chapter 1, this text provides numerous hands-on exercises and examples, each chapter ending with a significant-size program demonstrating the step-by-step process of program development, testing, and debugging. A final chapter includes the history of computing, starting with Charles Babbage, containing over 65 historical images. An end-of-book Python 3 Programmers Reference is also included for quick lookup of Python details. Extensive instructor materials are provided for those adopting for classroom use, including an instructors manual, over 1,000 well-developed slides covering all fundamental topics of each chapter, source code, and test bank.
