Give your teens computer knowledge that goes far beyond the standard typing and Windows programs they're already familiar with. TeenCoder is designed for high school students interested in computer science as a career, hobby, or looking for a more challenging computer course for their high school requirements!
TeenCoder: Windows Programming is the first semester course in the TeenCoder C# series, and introduces 9th-12th grade students to the C# programming language, which is commonly used in business, academic, and industrial settings. Students will learn to create graphical Windows applications (and a chess game!) using object-oriented design concepts.
Each chapter explains a programming concept in detail with corresponding sample code. Activities at the end of each chapter prompt the student to write their own program based on the material learned in the chapter; students are encouraged to be creative and personalize their programming projects as they learn to create applications.
One Semester. Grades 9-12. 252 pages, softcover. CD included. 3rd Edition.
Topics covered include:
- Introduction to Windows Programming
- Fundamentals of C#
- Data Types and Variables
- Basic Flow Control
- User Input
- Math Functions in C#
- Working with Strings
- File Input/Output
- Sorting and recursion
- Inheritance and Polymorphism
TeenCoder Windows Programming is the pre-requisite to the sold-separately TeenCoder Game Programming curriculum. However, the KidCoder is not a prerequisite to TeenCoder Windows Programming. They maintain the same fun, easy-to-learn style as the KidCoder series but cover a wider variety of topics in more depth; students do not need to know anything about computer programming prior to this course.

Book1 Stars Out Of 5Very DisappointedApril 17, 2015BookQuality: 3Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Save your money. I would not recommend this course. It is extremely difficult to use and the instructions are not very clear. As an introduction this book is very poor. Unless you are already familiar with computer programming, I would not buy this book. A waste of money.
