super packages called office suites. Object-oriented design became the design of choice for large programming projects. Whereas structured design is based on a hierarchy of tasks, object-oriented design is based on a hierarchy of data objects. Java, a language designed by Sun Microsystems for object-oriented programming, began to rival C++. The World Wide Web made it easy to use the Internet to share information around the world. A browser is a program that allows a user to access information

Therefore, 943 in base 13 is equal to 1576 in base 10. Keep in mind that these two numbers have an equivalent value. That is, they both represent the same number of things. If a bag contains 943 (base 13) beans, and another bag contains 1576 (base 10) beans, both bags contain the exact same number of beans. Number systems just allow us to represent values in various ways. Why would anyone want to represent values in base 13? It isn’t done very often, granted, but it is sometimes helpful to

CD, of course, stands for compact disk—you probably have a collection of them with recorded music. A CD drive uses a laser to read information stored optically on a plastic disk. Rather than having concentric tracks, there is one track that spirals from the inside out. Like other disks, the track is broken into sectors. Unlike magnetic disks where the tracks near the center are more densely packed, a CD has the data evenly packed over the whole disk, thus more information is stored in the track

looked at applying the problem-solving strategies to the problem of giving directions. We asked questions and looked at several alternatives. Humans are involved in the problem-solving process every day. In fact, we do it so often that it has become instinctive. We go from one step to the next in Polya’s list every day without being conscious of it. It is only when we have a big problem to solve that we take time to examine what we are doing and become aware of the transition between stages. In
