Description

KAREL The Robot teaches students the fundamental concepts and skills of programming, quickly and easily. By emphasizing logic and structure over calculation, it provides a nonthreatening introduction to the central ideas in programming.

This widely praised guide begins by introducing KAREL, a literal-minded robot whos built-in capabilities allow him to explore his world and manipulate simple objects in it. Once students learn the details of KAREL's deceptively simple programming language, they will soon be designing well-structured programs that instruct KAREL to perform surprisingly complex tasks. Along the way students will be absorbing sophisticated programming concepts that will enhance their programming ability.

Help Karel navigate his world by mastering programming fundamentals

MAC Software to accompany Karel the Robot: A Gentle Introduction to the Art of Programming teaches basic programming concepts and ideas in the context of robot instruction. Emphasizing problem solving over rote code, this book walks the reader through basic commends, then conditional statements, then more complicated repeating instructions to help Karel the robot navigate his way through simple ? and not-so-simple ? challenges. Easy to read and fun to work, this book helps beginner programmers gain a firm grasp of the fundamentals.
