First courses in computer science usually deal with sequential algorithms and programs. Unfortunately, this gets students accustomed to sequential thinking, making it hard for them to understand and effectively use parallelism later. On the other hand, because parallel programming is so difficult, introducing it at an early stage is impractical. So, my colleagues at the Jerusalem College of Technology and I developed flexible algorithms for teaching
