Student Comments

“I liked how everything was on Runestone and there was one platform for all of the preview problems, notes, solutions, and homework assignments. It's easy and convenient.”

“Runestone was definitely superior to other platforms. Being able to open the problems up in the textbook and do them there instead of a different website really added something to the class”

“I loved having Runestone. Having the homework and preview in the textbook was helpful... I especially like how it saves your answers and how the interface allows you to type equations really well.”

Professors have  this to say.

In teaching introductory programming with Python, I can’t

live without the online interactive python book “How to Think Like

a Computer Scientist ”.   With this book I can demo code in lecture, and students can experiment with concepts in the book as they learn them. With a free account, it keeps track of what you have read and problems you have already answered.
