New Releases...Tyndal Stone Media's C.S. Solutions
Tyndal Stone Media's C.S. Solutions is a comprehensive, interactive learning tool for introductory computer science. Students learn the basic tenets of programming using the visual metaphor of a 3-D robot. Working individually or in teams, students create increasingly complex applications for the robot to walk, step, climb and, eventually, navigate several difficult courses. Through these exercises, students learn about algorithms, programming structures, programs composed of a main logic module and submodules, problem solving, the ability to test and debug a program and an understanding of appropriate internal documentation.
