Microsoft( Visual Basic( FUNdamentals is a fun, new approach to teaching one of the most widely used programming languages in the world. This book, designed for use in a beginning semester course at the high school level, teaches Visual Basic programming using a problem-solving approach. In each chapter, major programming concepts such as repetition, decision structures, and sequential processing are taught with real world examples. There is a strong emphasis on comments and good programming styleþ throughout the book. The chapter projects, which are a combination of business-related projects (such as checkbook record storage) and entertainment projects (such as tic tac toe), all require knowledge, planning, and testing, and will challenge students' critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. The supplementary Teacher's Manual includes student objectives, teaching suggestions, answers to review questions, as well as teaching suggestions and evaluation strategies for exercises and projects. A Solutions Disk included in the Teacher's Manual provides solutions to all chapter exercises and projects. A test bank is also included on the Solutions Disk.
