|The programming language in this course is TrueBASIC Bronze for Windows. Students purchase the software and install it on their own computer via the included CD.|
|The book that is used to learn how to write Web pages is "HTML for the World Wide Web, with XHTML and CSS", Fifth Edition, by Elizabeth Castro, Peachpit Press (2003) - ISBN 0-321-13007-3.|
An excellent reference book for the numerical solution of physics problems is "Solve It! Computer-Aided Mathematics for Science and Engineering", by Samuel Doughty, Gulf Publishing Company (1995) - ISBN 0-88415-266-9. All of the examples are written in TrueBASIC. The book comes with a disk.
