The Logo language has charmed kids for a generation. Many of today's programmers started out on Logo as kids! Now yours can too. Learn some HTML and office skills too. MicroWorlds Logo disk required; buy separately. Computer Science Pure and Simple Book 1 provides a self-study introduction to computer skills in the form of a student manual (suitable for homeschooling) with answer key. It teaches kids in grade 5 and up basic skills in programming and making Web pages, along with skills in word processing and spreadsheets. It was written by homeschoolers and computer professionals, describing what went on during a year of beginning computer class in a homeschool co-op in St. Louis. For use with a fun kids' programming application, MicroWorlds, using the time-tested Logo programming language for kids. "My (12-year-old) son LOVED learning Logo! ...The lessons for all of the topics are presented so well that most students can work through the course independently. I eagerly look forward to reviewing future products from Motherboard Books!"--Cindy Prechtel, Editor, Homeschool Reviews for You. From The Old Schoolhouse Magazine: "I have to start by saying this is a dream come true for homeschooling parents who want to teach their children computer skills! We found this program was easy to follow and fun to use. My children loved watching their work actually WORK when they did what the book instructed. ..."I would strongly recommend this curriculum to anyone wanting to learn some basic computer skills; that includes adults and students!" -Anissa DeGrasse for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine's Web site. From Eclectic Homeschool Online: "Computer Science Pure and Simple Book 1 for Homeschoolers gets kids working immediately taking what they read and applying it. The instructional detail is just right, not over explaining and thereby confusing, nor skipping steps that may be intuitive to more experienced computer users."--Beverly Krueger for Eclectic Homeschool Online.
