Have a general class about problem solving. Too many people are unable to understand the problem input, the problem output, and how to break that problem down into steps before sitting down to code.

Like fuck, the biggest issue here isn't that students don't know how to code, it's that they can't fucking solve a simple problem

    I think the issue here is that they believed that you already know how to break down a problem into simple components.

    it's the curse of knowledge if you would.

    I would say that taking a class in assembly really help me strengthen those lessons I learned about problem solving.

    @Heartizack What I find so interesting is is that our program often assumes students are coming in with no background knowledge on programming in any form. So I don't have if that would be the case. Though I guess problem solving != programming
