A Minimal Instruction Set for Education

Tobias Kohn, The Education Column by Juraj Hromkovic and Dennis Komm


Computer science education is often caught between the desire to teach algorithmics and the necessity to build a solid basis of programming to prop- erly implement algorithms. We thus raise the question of how much pro- gramming we need before we can start tackling interesting computational problems and demonstrate how important computational concepts emerge almost naturally with a minimal set of programming constructs needed.
