Thinking Like a Programmer

I see this problem continually in the first years I TA – they’re so overwhelmed by syntax they don’t know how to start to write the program. VB (in Excel) is especially mean about this, as if a line of code won’t compile it won’t let you go to the next one.

So, having given the same explanation 10+ times I’ve made it into a presentation – I hope if you’re a beginner programmer you’ll find it useful. Let me know what you think!
