Book Sample Page

Here is a sample page from the book I am working on. The purpose of the book is to give kids and their teachers a launching off point from which they can explore each area.

Open the book to any page, and on the left hand side is a set of small, working programs that illustrate an idea. On the right hand side is a very short explanation, highlighting terminology that you can use to find more information on Google or Wikipedia.

In total there will be about 28 topics like this covered, starting with sequencing, looping, nesting, output, and input; and moving on to recursion, motion, concurrency, and reasoning. Each topic is illustrated with one or more short programs that fit on a page, and each program is less than 50 lines long.
