Sample text

In this chapter we introduce the themes of computer science, which are like the scenes in a tapestry, and the concepts, which are like the unifying threads. ” It can apply to tapestries and to computer programming. This book uses a contextural approach in which programming is the vehicle for learning about computer science. Although it is possible to study computer science without programming, it would be like studying food and cooking without eating, which would be neither as enjoyable nor as satisfying.

3 Essential computer science themes. 4 Recurring concepts If the algorithms are to be implemented on a computer or used by people (who are in some sense “computational engines”), there must be a language in which the algorithms are expressed. We have noted that cooking recipes, while similar to algorithms, often leave room for ambiguity. Although English (or other natural languages) may at some point become a viable language in which to “instruct” computers, specialized computer languages are needed now.
