Ib Penick (1930-1998), a native of Denmark, was known as “the creative mind behind the resurgence of pop-up children’s books in the 1960s and 1970s.[2] In his career, Penick designed more than 130 children’s books, including Star Wars: a Pop-up Book, which sold more than a million copies.[3] Penick related to one reporter, "...there are only about 100 folds and tricks to [his paper engineering] trade. It's like playing a piano. You have only a certain number of keys, but it's the combinations that make the difference."[4]


In the 1960s Penick joined Waldo Hunt at Graphics International, a firm that created pop-up books, including a series of titles for Random House and other publishers.[5] Penick was the "premier paper engineer" for the Random House pop-up titles, and Tor Lokvig was his protege.[6] According to Gerald Harrison, a former president of the children's books division at Random House, Penick "was really responsible for creating the whole world we lived in. With the advent of the Random House line, a whole industry was created and the very first ones were created by Ib."[7]

Penick and Hunt later sold Graphics International to Hallmark Cards in 1966.[8]

Computer Science is an experimental science that offers a rigorous and practical problem-solving discipline, which, as a methodology, can be applied to all walks of life.

If we suppose that many natural phenomena are in effect computations, the study of computer science can tell us about the kinds of natural phenomena that can occur.

—Rudy Rucker

Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.

—Edsger Dijkstra

Computer Science is embarrassed by the computer.

—Alan Perlis

About this Book[edit]

This wiki is in no way endorsed or a stem from the International Baccalaureate Organisation. It is, however, the result of particular lack of a solid textbook for the new 2014 course. These pages are, furthermore, derived from notes and knowledge of a student taking the course. This wiki will, hopefully, act as a course companion. You may find the Definitions page useful for revision.


The syllabus is an ideal document that should be referred to on a regular basis, whilst reading this wiki or not. It provides extensive details regarding what should be learnt rather than the content itself, as this wiki hopes to provide the end to that need. Therefore, each objective has been specified above the content that it is associated with. For example:

X.Y.Z Assessment statement that the candidate must fulfil

The example aforementioned is self explanatory, however, the X.Y.Z refers to the topic, sub-topic and objective, respectively.
