Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thanks for this nice book! It's not the right level for my students, but it's a good reference for me to use so I can get ideas on how to present this to my Gen Ed students. Many of the algorithms are implemented by Jaap (see his website) so even though the disc is all "old school" by now, there are other places you can send your students for the exercises.
