9780132594448: A Balanced Introduction to Computer Science

A Balanced Introduction to Computer Science, 3/e is ideal for Introduction to Computing and the Web courses in departments of Math and Computer Science.

This thoughtfully written text uses the Internet as a central theme, studying its history, technology, and current use. Experimental problems use Web-based tools, enabling students to learn programming fundamentals by developing their own interactive Web pages with HTML and JavaScript. Integrating breadth-based and depth-based chapters, Reed covers a broad range of topics balanced with programming depth in a hands-on, tutorial style.

“The textbook [Reed] explains a concept, shows the code, then give a pictorial example to reinforce that point. An excellent example is in chapter four when talking about ONMOUSEOVER and ONMOUSEOUT.” ? Dr. Jenna Miley, Bainbridge College

“The thing that struck me [about Reed] was how the examples are presented followed by adding functionality, basically anticipating questions that a reader would have after doing the examples.” ? Lionel Craddock, Bluefield State College

“The examples are illuminating and effective.” ? Lionel Craddock, Bluefield State College

“This text [Reed] offers very clear explanations of difficult topics.” ? Ralph Hooper, University of Alabama

“Reed’s examples are relevant and fun; his language is clear and concise, and his use of the language is accessible to non-majors.” ? Arnold D. Miles, Georgetown University

“The programming is presented in a well-organized manner; it builds smoothly.” ? Arnold D. Miles, Georgetown University
