Abstract

Functional programming includes complex concepts and advanced ideas such as building abstractions with functions, compound data and list processing. As part of a new computer science curriculum for high school students in Israel, we developed a functional programming course, using DrScheme environment [1], based on recent research in science education that emphasizes the constructivist nature of learning. This paper deals with some preliminary findings from our field research and discusses some of the successes and difficulties of the high school students who took part in the course.
