dc.description.abstract We present what students say about their preferred learning style to succeed in introductory programming. Using the Felder-Silverman learning styles, students contrasted the 'best' learning style for programming with the 'best' for learning mathematics. Overall students believe that while they learn mathematics using a reflective style, learning to program is significantly more active. They also believe learning mathematics has a strong verbal component, whereas learning programming is primarily visual. en
