Introducing Requirements Acquisition and Analysis through a very Incompletely Specified Problem
After succeeding in programming courses, many students in computer science and related areas have developed expectations, habits and practices that make the need for analysis of complex problems-through modeling, requirements and specification-difficult to grasp. Exposing students to a highly incomplete problem description early in a software engineering course promotes internalization of this often critical process. We suggest that analogous challenges may be important across many disciplines and at all levels of education.
