Sec 1.1 : What is A Computer? Your textbook has a hilarious answer. Page 2: “You have probably used a computer for work or fun. Many people use computers for everyday tasks such as balancing a checkbook or writing a term paper. Computers are good for such tasks.”

3 What is a program? Page 2: “What makes all this possible is not only the computer. The computer must be programmed to perform these tasks. One program balances a checkbook; a different program, probably designed and constructed by a different company, processes words; and a third program plays a game.” A program is a set of instructions for the computer to follow. In order for the computer to understand your instructions, you have to learn a certain syntax or set of grammar rules. C++ As A Foreign Language circle6 Learning C++ is like learning a foreign language. circle6 You have to learn the basic words, but also the grammar for arranging the words sensibly. circle6 This class is a lot like a language class. We’re not going to teach you every word or phrase that you’ll ever need.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
