Teaching Methods and Classroom Techniques Programming Languages Subroutines in Procedural Programming Languages
University Press "Paisii Hilendarski", Plovdiv
Students on introductory courses in programming languages often experience difficulty understanding the basic principles of procedural programming. In this paper we discuss the importance of early understanding of the subroutine mechanism. Two approaches for self-training – static and dynamic - are presented and compared. The static approach is appropriate for written text in paper textbook. The dynamic approach is suitable for interactive training using a computer. An interactive module was developed for teaching subroutines.
