in reply to Fundamentals Of Programming -- In 6 Hours

Hmmm...six hours is not the biggest time span to learn programming ;)

What about functions? I think this is fairly fundamental thing in programming (at least functional one ;). Even if you do not teach them how to write their own functions, you should explain what functions are. They will be calling predefined language functions anyway, so it should be beneficial in their understanding what they are doing.

    Functions, of course. You're quite right. Because functions lead to the concept of Modularity as well.
