Problem Solving in Introductory Computer Science

In the Computer Science Department at the University of Kent, we have recently tried to incorporate more explicit advice about problem solving strategies into our introductory programming teaching. You can obtain some of the handouts we have produced from here. We described our experiences in Introductory Problem Solving in Computer Science in Goretti Daughton and Patricia Magee, editors, 5th Annual Conference on the Teaching of Computing, pages 36-39, Centre for Teaching Computing, Dublin City University, Dublin 9, Ireland, August 1997.

We would welcome any comments you might have on these materials; please use the form.
