Programming in Middle School

These mimeographed (?) handouts are from my first two programming classes (ca. 1979): Middle School Computers and Middle School Advanced Computers. We used a Teletype connected to a timesharing service as well as a Commodore PET microcomputer.

One of the first handouts I got in a programming class, this describes the general architecture of a typical computer.

Apparently I was fascinated by error messages because I wrote down as many as I could.

Using the computer as a calculator.

An introduction to base two math (specifically subtraction).

Subtraction in base two by adding complements.

"Putting numbers into a program during a run -- the INPUT statement"

My introduction to the GOTO statement (and spaghetti code).

Flowchart for computing factorials

Code for computing factorials

The "IF...THEN..." statement

User-defined functions

"Advanced" programming: simple operations on matrices
