EBook Description: Computer simulation was first pioneered as a scientific tool in meteorology and nuclear physics in the period following World War II, but it has grown rapidly to become indispensible in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, high-energy physics, climate science, engineering, ecology, and economics. Digital computer simulation helps study phenomena of great complexity, but how much do we know about the limits and possibilities of this new scientific practice? How do simulations compare to traditional experiments? And are they reliable? Eric Winsberg seeks to answer these questions in Science in the Age of Computer Simulation. Scrutinizing these issue with a philosophical lens, Winsberg explores the impact of simulation on such issues as the nature of scientific evidence; the role of values in science; the nature and role of fictions in science; and the relationship between simulation and experiment, theories and data, and theories at different levels of description. Science in the Age of Computer Simulation will transform many of the core issues in philosophy of science, as well as our basic understanding of the role of the digital computer in the sciences.

Computer Science: An Activity-Based Approach

The dynamic evolution of the field of computer science (CS) also poses educational and pedagogical challenges, such as issues of CS teacher recruitment, pre-service teacher preparation, support for teachers' ongoing professional development, and the design of teaching and learning material.

This unique Guide to Teaching Computer Science presents both a conceptual framework and detailed implementation guidelines for general CS teaching. The content is clearly written and structured to be applicable to all levels of CS education and for any teaching organization, without limiting its focus to instruction of any specific curriculum, programming language or paradigm.

Topics and features:
Presents an overview of curriculum topics in CS, and of research in CS education
Examines strategies for teaching problem-solving, pupil evaluation, and for dealing with pupils’ misunderstandings
Provides learning activities throughout the book
Proposes active-learning-based classroom teaching methods, as well as methods for lab-based teaching
Discusses various types of questions that a CS instructor, tutor, or trainer can use for a range of teaching situations
Investigates thoroughly issues of lesson planning and course design
Describes frameworks by which prospective CS teachers gain their first teaching experience

Drawing on the authors’ experience of more than two decades of teaching and research in CS education, this concise, thorough and easy-to-follow book is eminently suitable for use as either a teaching guide for all CS instructors or as a textbook for CS teacher training programs.

Dr. Orit Hazzan is an associate professor in the Department of Education in Technology and Science at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel. Dr. Tami Lapidot is Executive Manager of Machshava – the Israeli National Center for Computer Science Teachers, Haifa, Israel. Dr. Noa Ragonis is a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Beit Berl College, Israel.

1.Introduction to Computer Science and Programming

This subject is aimed at students with little or no programming experience. It aims to provide students with an understanding of the role computation can play in solving problems. It also aims to help students, regardless of their major, to feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs that allow them to accomplish useful goals. The class will use the Python programming language.

Discrete Mathematics for Computer Science

An increasing number of computer scientists from diverse areas are using discrete mathematical structures to explain concepts and problems. Based on their teaching experiences, the authors offer an accessible text that emphasizes the fundamentals of discrete mathematics and its advanced topics. This text shows how to express precise ideas in clear mathematical language. Students discover the importance of discrete mathematics in describing computer science structures and problem solving. They also learn how mastering discrete mathematics will help them develop important reasoning skills that will continue to be useful throughout their careers.

Computer Science An Overview

I wrote this text for students of computer science as well as students from other disciplines. As for computer science students, most begin their studies with the illusion that computer science is programming and Web browsing since that is essentially all they have seen. Yet computer science is much more than this. In turn, beginning computer science students need exposure to the breadth of the subject in which they are planning to major. Providing this exposure is the theme of this book. It gives students an overview of computer science-a foundation from which they can appreciate the relevance and interrelationships of future courses in the field. This survey approach is, in fact, the model used for introductory courses in the natural sciences.

C plus plus for Computer Science and Engineering

For CS1 and other courses covering beginning programming in C++. It is aimed at readers with little or no programming experience. It can be used both in Computer Science and Engineering programs as a first course in programming. It is in use at Illinois Central College in the Cmpsc 125 Introduction to C++ and Engr 230 Engineering Applications in C++ courses. The Fourth Edition has been updated to use Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET 2005 compiler.
