9780131377080: Problem Solving with Data Structures Using Java: A Multimedia Approach: International Edition

Problem Solving with Data Structures, First Edition is not a traditional data structures textbook that teaches concepts in an abstract, and often dry, context that focuses on data structures using numbers. Instead, this book takes a more creative approach that uses media and simulations (specifically, trees and linked lists of images and music), to make concepts more concrete, more relatable, and therefore much more motivating for students.

 

This book is appropriate for both majors and non-majors.  It provides an introduction to object-oriented programming in Java, arrays, linked lists, trees, stacks, queues, lists, maps, and heaps.  It also covers an existing simulation package (Greenfoot) and how to create continuous and discrete event simulations.

Review:

“An innovative departure from the typical presentation of this content; it uses a multimedia context to highly engage students. This is a refreshing applied/practical presentation than the more common abstract one.” ― Tom Wulf, University of Cincinnati College of Applied Science

“This textbook [Guzdial/Ericson] may be a way to introduce computer science students to data structures without losing them as majors!” ― Helen Hu, Westminster College

“The applications are just so darn interesting!” ― Kathy Liszka, University of Akron

“Overall, I think the examples and applications are more interesting and relevant than other CS2 textbooks that I have seen before.” ― Timothy Huang, Middlebury College

“This text [Guzdial/Ericson] explores data structures using the context of pictures, sounds, music, animations, and simulations. It provides rich context for learning about the structuring of data using Java.” ― Charles Fowler, Gainesville State College

“Other data structures books are generally boring. Guzdial/Ericson uses media computation successfully in introductory programming courses in both Java and Python. Students can see the usefulness and relevancy of programming to manipulating digital media.” ― Kam Fui Lau, Armstrong Atlantic State University
