Enhancing Theory of Computation Teaching Through Integration with other Courses

Mukta Goyal, Shelly Sachdeva

Full text: PDF


Teaching and learning, theory of computation is a challenging task from both the perspective since it involves the abstract notions and mathematical background. Moreover, representation of its relevance to other computer science courses is inadequate. Due to the importance of closer interaction between theoretical and applied scientists, motivation among students is required, which may be done by increasing interest and enjoyment. This paper aims towards introducing different approaches for making the course interactive and realistic by integrating it with other courses learnt in previous semesters and current semester of engineering. Consequently the fascination towards teaching increases and students have active participation in the learning of theory of computation (TOC) course.
