Students should have at least a working knowledge of the computer language called BASIC, a quaint little language used by humans to tell computers what they are supposed to do. The word “BASIC” is an acronym for “Beginners Allpurpose Symbolic Instruction Code.” BASIC (which should always be written in capital letters) was invented by Kemeny and Kurtz at Dartmouth College in 1963.
For a beginning class in BASIC, the reader is referred to other units in this volume. In particular, the units of Joyce Bryant and Lauretta Fox.
