If you have a burgeoning programmer on your hands, KidCoder provides the hands-on introduction to set them on their way! KidCoder: Windows Programming is the first semester course of the "KidCoder" Visual Basic course-year (followed by KidCoder Game Programming), and teaches students in grades 6-8 how to write their own Windows programs using the industry-basic Visual Basic programming language.
Students will learn about creating Windows screens, using data, making decisions, and handling user input. Chapters cover getting user input, working with numbers, program loops, functions, using the debugger, distributing programs, and more. Students will create a different program at the end of each chapter; and in the final chapter, students will demonstrate everything they've learned by writing a simple computer game.
Important concepts, sidebars that highlight additional information, chapter review summaries, and "your turn" practice activities are highlighted within each chapter. Plenty of screenshots and visually distinct HTML ensure that instructions and code is clearly understood.
No prior computer programming or HTML experience is required; the other year of KidCoder, the Web Design series, can be completed before or after this course. Course CD with set-up program is also included. 213 pages, indexed, softcover. Reproducible for personal use only. An optional Windows Programming Course Supplemental Instructional DVDis also available for this course, which covers every chapter and lesson with fun, animated videos (sold separately).
