Introduction to Programming Concepts with Case Studies in Python
The current text provides a clear introduction to Computer Science concepts in a programming environment. It is designed as suitable use in freshman- or introductory level coursework in CS and provides the fundamental concepts as well as abstract theorems for solving computational problems. The Python language serves as a medium for illustrating and demonstrating the concepts.
This book is needed because Python is becoming the language through which freshman computer science and engineering students are introduced to the concepts of programming and computer science This book is a timely and strong alternative to the existing textbooks This book introduces concepts by starting with the Q/A 'WHY'? and proceeds by the Q/A 'HOW'?. Most other books start with the Q/A 'WHAT'? which is then followed by a 'HOW'? The CS content of this book is not hijacked by a programming language
