465010 COMPUTER SCIENCE WITH PROGRAMMING/CODING EMPHASIS (LEVEL I) (ADE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS)

TERM: FALL & SPRING CREDIT: .5

 

Introduction to Computer Science offers students the opportunity to explore three distinct areas in computer science: programming, networking, and information security. Students will develop knowledge and skills in computational thinking and problem solving; data and information; algorithms and programs; computers and communications; and community, global, and ethical impacts. Emphasis is placed on making real-world connections between students, course topics, and programming in the field of computer science. Prerequisites: None

 

465020 COMPUTER SCIENCE WITH PROGRAMMING/CODING EMPHASIS (LEVEL II) (ADE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS)

TERM: FALL & SPRING CREDIT: .5

 

This course expands upon the concepts covered in the Introduction to Computer Science (Level 1) course and places significant emphasis on developing proficiency in computer programming/coding. Students will learn to analyze problems and develop solutions to those problems in a collaborative learning environment. Multiple technologies will be engaged in order to equip students with fluencies that will enable them to adapt to the constantly-changing field of computer science. Prerequisites: None
