The module was designed to achieve the following; 1. Identify flowcharting symbols. 2. Use flowchart symbols in identifying steps/pseudocode in logic formulation. 3. Formulate flowchart solutions. The material used a problem-direct solution approach. Instead of defining each flowchart symbol first, we applied it on situation when we need it and define it on the sidelines. What covered on this material are program flowcharts. System flowcharts are designed to show interface between input/output devices, to other systems, and the program itself. It uses other specialized symbols which are beyond the coverage of this courseware. Though new tools are being introduced in software development, flowcharting is still one of the effective tools in presenting the logic/idea of program execution. Students of Computer Science or related IT courses will benefit on this courseware as one prepares career as Scientist, Analyst, Programmer or Project Manager. We encourage everyone to give us feedback on how you find this material so we may improve it. You may reach us at thrivingJerry@yahoo.com.
