BASIC (Beginners' All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code or Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) is a family of general-purpose, high-level programming languages whose design philosophy emphasizes ease of use. The original version was designed by John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz and released at Dartmouth College in They wanted to enable students in fields other than Designed by: John G. Kemeny, Thomas E. Kurtz. Microcomputers is an old term that denoted a difference in size between them and minicomputers and mainframes. Today these items (laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones) are referred to as.

The computing language is BASIC, a high-level lan­ guage that is easy to learn and widely available using time-sharing com­ puter systems and personal microcomputers. The strategy of the book is to present computer programming at the outset and to use it : Paperback. The Rainbow Workbooks form part of the Department of Basic Education’s range of interventions aimed at improving the performance of South African learners in the first six grades. As one of the priorities of the Government’s Plan of Action, this project has been made possible by the generous funding of the National Treasury.

Then microcomputers came along and changed everything. Today it is easy for nearly everybody to use a computer. Now: • Microcomputers are common tools in all areas of life. Writers write, artists draw, engineers and scientists calculate—all on microcomputers. Stu-dents and businesspeople do all this, and more. •New forms of learning have File Size: 5MB.   Microcomputers come in a variety of sizes and shapes for a variety of purposes, For example, PCs are available as handheld, notebook, laptop, tablet, portable, desktop, and floor-standing models.
