Getting Down to BASIC is the first book published by K-12 MicroMedia. The 64-page workbook is for students in grades 7-10 who have had no prior programming coursework.

Designed to be used while students are working at the microcomputer, Getting Down to BASIC clearly and concisely explains and illustrates key BASIC commands, statements, and elementary programming techniques, including loops, flowcharting, and graphics commands. Differences among Apple, PET, and TRS-80 are noted throughout. Eight labs conveniently segment the material into manageable lessons. A glossary explains over 50 common computer terms.

Getting Down to BASIC costs $4.95 (plus 50€ postage). School discounts are available for quantity purchases.
