Abstract

We present a didactical approach to the introductory computer science course in high school, and display a primary study of teachers' attitudes towards this approach. Our focus is on the presentation of computational elements and algorithm/program design, in a textbook that "zips" both theoretical and practical notions, while aiming for ease of comprehension on one hand and the development of a scientific discipline on the other. The teachers' responses to the presented approach reflect positive and constructive attitudes.
