Product Description

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 or hobby, or for students who want a more challenging computer elective!

TeenCoder: Game Programming is the second semester course in the TeenCoder C# series (preceded by the TeenCoder Windows Programming) and introduces 9th-12th grade students to the C# programming language, the Visual C# 2010 Express development environment, and Microsoft's XNA Game Studio 4.0 development kit.

Students will learn the basic of game programming, including game design and logic, displaying graphics, animating images, handling sprites, playing sounds, game physics, maze solutions, multi-player viewports, and even AI. 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.

One Semester. Grades 9-12. 233 pages, softcover. Course CD included, which provides a Solution Guide PDF and fully coded solutions for all activities.

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Game Programming
  • Game Design
  • Graphics Concepts
  • Working with Images
  • User Input
  • Sprites
  • Completing Swarm
  • Animation
  • Music and Sound Affects
  • Game Physics
  • Maze Generation
  • Menus, Overlays, Deployment
  • Multiplayer Games
  • Artificial Intelligence

    TeenCoder Windows Programming is the pre-requisite to this TeenCoder Game Programming curriculum. However, the KidCoder curriculum 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. An optional Game Programming Supplemental Instructional DVD, 3rd Edition is also available for this course, which covers every chapter and lesson with fun, animated videos (sold separately).
