35th Annual Frontiers in Education Conference Proceedings
35th Annual Frontiers in Education Conference: Pedagogies and Technologies for the Emerging Global Economy
The use of tangible models in the classroom (at all levels of instruction) is incredibly common; CS instruction is no exception. In this report, we discuss experiences in using the common Barrel of Monkeysreg toy to teach concepts related to dynamically allocated linked lists. Points of emphasis include pointer vs. object distinctions, copies of pointers, list manipulation algorithms, memory allocation and leaks, and classroom presentation tips
