Traditionally, pointers, and their interaction with scope in C++ have been a source of frustration and confusion for students in our Computer Science II course. Since problem-solving is known to improve learning [6], we set out to develop software that would help our students better understand these concepts by repeatedly solving problems based on them.In this paper, we will first describe the design and features of this software. We conducted tests in two sections of our Computer Science II… CONTINUE READING
