    Many education researchers believe that different people learn differently, and have tried to understand and classify different learning styles [3]. One of the categorized types was that of a Visual Learner, who prefers "pictures, diagrams, or flow charts" [4]. There is a building momentum for creating material (images, animations, interactive displays) for use in science and engineering education [5]. The goal of this project is to join this wave of educators and create compelling and informative visual imagery to facilitate teaching lower- and upper-division computer science.

    Ketrina Yim is a rare find–a student with an extremely strong computer science record and a love of illustration with educational interests. On her own volition, she penned several "tutorial sheets" for her fellow students learning Scheme in CS61A (Figures 1 and 2).
