Data structures

IBM and the Holocaust IBM punch card and card sorting system helped to identify the victims, project and rationalize the benefits of their destruction, organize their persecution, and even audit the efficiency of genocide

Problem-solving in small groups – Pause procedure

Evaluate the following expressions:

x=3, y=6, z=8 (double)

n = - ( m = -x * y / (-z + -y ) ) + 5

b=2, c=3, d=4 (int)

a = b * -c * d / 2 / b

n =

3.7142

a =

-6

Cooperative learning: Pair Programming

Two programmers work in the same machine playing two possible roles:

• Driver: types at the computer or records a design
• Navigator: watches the work of the driver and attentively identifies problems, asks clarifying questions, and makes suggestions.
