Abstract: The EasyCPU is a simulation-based environment. The model presented is a simplified version of microcomputer based on Intel X86 microprocessor. EasyCPU has two modes of operation: Basic-Mode and Advanced-Mode. Basic mode enables the novice student to learn the syntax and semantics of individual instructions. The Advanced Mode provides students with adequate tools to develop their own programs. It focuses on the visualization of the execution process. EasyCPU was especially developed for educational purposes to be an integral component of the course Computer Architecture and Assembly Language at the introductory level. The course is taught to 11th grade high school students as a part of the computer sciences program toward matriculation graduation. Since 1995 the program and the activities were tested in thirty High Schools with more than 3000 students involved.
