For CS1 courses in Python Programming (including majors and non-majors).

A problem-solving approach to programming with Python.

The Practice of Computing Using Python introduces CS1 students (majors and non-majors) to computational thinking using Python.  With data-manipulation as a theme, students quickly see the value in what they’re learning and leave the course with a set of immediately useful computational skills that can be applied to problems they encounter in future pursuits.  The book takes an “object-use-first” approach—writing classes is covered only after students have mastered using objects.
