Abstract The introductory course in data processing and computer programming as taught at Elon College is first, a strong introduction to structured programming in BASIC and second, a look at the business side of data processing. It is an attempt to expose students to the terminology of computers and their uses and also get them acquainted with some of the standard concepts of computing algorithms and problem solving. Students use the DEC PDP 11/34 for this first course and no attempt is made to teach line editing with EDT. There is such a wide range of abilities in this course that we try to gear the material so that most students will have a positive experience and frustrations will be kept to a minimum.
