Product description

Awesome Algorithms and Creative Coding explores how computers work and explains how to think in a logical way. The bright and engaging design guides readers through clear explanations of binary code, simple algorithms and computer language. With real-life examples readers learn about the development of coding using simple decision making processes. Looks at programming languages that readers can use themselves, including Scratch and LOGO. Stretch Yourself features give practical activities to help readers explore and test key principles. These ‘try at home’ examples help reinforce learning and are not linked to specific software or operating systems. True Story features give real-world anecdotes from the world of information technology. Computer Hero features look at the forerunners of digital technology that have paved the way for scientists today. Get Ahead in Computing is a practical and much-needed resource for the KS1-2 computing curriculum exploring all aspects of computational thinking. The series breaks down this new curriculum subject into four titles covering key topics: computer science, algorithms & coding, applications & programs, and computer networks. Ideal for young readers starting the new Computing curriculum subject in school. Other titles in the Get Ahead in Computing series: The Science of Computers, Amazing Applications & Perfect Programs, and Computer Networks.
