A Hands-On Introduction to Using Python in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences By Johnny Wei-Bing Lin
Paperback: $20.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Python is a modern computer language whose use in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences (AOS) is growing by leaps and bounds. Yet, while many excellent resources exist for learning Python, there have... More > not been any resources specifically written for the AOS user. This book is a hands-on introduction to Python written for AOS researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates who are new to Python (seasoned Python users will find the book of limited use). It focuses not on computer science but on how Python can help AOS users do AOS work. It is not a reference manual but a mini-course. We take a gentle approach to learning Python but do not aim to teach programming; readers should already know the basics of programming in another language. A color PDF version (with active hyperlinks) of this book is also available from the Lulu Marketplace. Note: Enthought Python Distribution (EPD) users should see the book's website (http://www.johnny-lin.com/pyintro) for an errata workaround specific to EPD.< Less

This book shows creative ways to engage students with ideas from computer science and computational thinking without using a computer. Many of the activities involve physically moving around, and get... More > students thinking about deep issues without having to learn to program. A video preview of the activities can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOYy4kyLEHs The book was written by three computer science lecturers and two school teachers, and is based on our experience in classrooms as well as feedback from hundreds of educators over two decades. We have found that many important concepts can be taught without using a computer-in fact, sometimes the computer is just a distraction from learning. Often computer science is taught using programming first, but not every student finds this motivating, and it can be a significant barrier to getting into the really interesting ideas in computer science. So unplug your computer, and get ready to learn what computer science is really about!< Less
