Dear Friends,

I'm looking for some help from the Scheme community. I hope this is the right place to ask for information.

I'm putting together a website aimed at high school students and teachers, and would like to make sure the following page is as good as possible:


In particular, "Why would I learn this language?" section needs to have a few paragraphs. I don't use Scheme so I hoped that you could provide the main reasons why Scheme is a language someone would want to learn about.

It would also be great if someone could rewrite the Scheme source code example so that it is as close as possible to the C implementation:


I understand that Scheme is very different from C, and uses different paradigms, so it doesn't have to be identical, however it would be great if it worked in generally the same way. It would be great if you could include comments explaining how it works and what is happening (like the C example).

Any other suggestions or ideas for the Scheme page would be fantastic, and any suggestions to other pages in general is also very helpful.


Kind regards,
