A Self-instructive and Easy to Read Visual Introduction to Programming

- Visual focus: A strong focus on visual learning increases the student’s motivation, encourages creativity and inspires the student to solve exciting problems!
- Easy to read: Unnecessary explanations are thrown away. We invite the student to make discoveries on his own, and explain the patterns he discovers in his own words.
- Solve problems: This book presents you with the tools to be better at solving problems, such as drawing a chessboard with programming or figuring out a particular game strategy.
- Applications in math: The second part of the book combines the power of the programming, with the mysterious and enchanting world of mathematics. Don’t worry about your math skills. We teach you the little bits of math necessary, as we move along.
- Programming concepts: Learn to code with programming concepts such as loops, if-else, functions, and variables.
- Complete solutions: This book contains complete solutions all the exercises, except the challenges given to you at the end of each chapter. We want the student to feel an extra strong sense of accomplishment, if they complete the challenges.

What separates this book from other introductory books to Programming?

Our book is written with a particularly strong focus on visual programming. We teach the reader programming through drawing figures. This makes learning programming much more fun and natural, and invites the reader to experiment and be creative from the start of Chapter 1.

What is this book about?

This book teaches you the basic concepts of programming in the language Python. The first part of the book takes you on a visual tour through the basic programming concepts. The second part of the book applies these concept to explore selected mathematical topics. We teach you the required math as we go along, so math knowledge is not a prerequisite to study programming with this book.

Who is this book for?

This book is for you who have never programmed before. You don’t even know what a program or programming is? That’s perfect. This book is for you. The book is also for students who need to use programming in math class. Recommended age-group is 12+. Teachers may find this book very useful, because the knowledge of good ways to teach programming from scratch is scarce in schools around the world. This book is written also for the classroom, specifically the math classroom. We have also written this book with parents in mind. If you are a parent who wants to help your child with programming, but you never learned programming yourself, then this book is for you too!
