I would recommend teaching ideas concerning logic in If, whiles and do
statements that are used in programming.  I also recommend teaching
the ideas of loops and how embedded loops can really add to the cost
of processing items. From my experience, with non-technical people,
these are a couple of ideas that they seem to have problems grasping.
