Visual Logic is a simple but powerful tool for teaching programming logic and design without traditional high-level programming language syntax. It uses flowcharts to explain essential programming concepts, including variables, input, assignment, output, conditions, loops, procedures, graphics, arrays, and files.

  • Can be used with a number of Cengage Learning Course Technology programming books, particularly those designed for an early course in programming in which students are learning concepts and fundamentals, using flowcharts.
