Title: A RATIONALE FOR CHOOSING A PURELY FUNCTIONAL LANGUAGE IN A FIRSTCOURSE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE
Authors: Loose, Kenneth D.
Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: 1-Dec-1994
Abstract: This paper provides a rationale for the choice of a language in a first course in Computer Science. It begins by highlighting features of learning and the problem-solving process identified in cognitive science. A set of criteria for selecting a language for a first course are then postulated. Finally, potential benefits of using a purely functional language are identified and some comparisons made to the more traditional use of imperative languages in teaching a first course.
