Exploring Computer Science
Exploring Computer Science is a yearlong course consisting of 6 units, approximately 6 weeks each. The course was developed around a framework of both computer science content and computational practice. Assignments and instruction are contextualized to be socially relevant and meaningful for diverse students. Units utilize a variety of tools/platforms, and culminate with final projects.
AP Computer Science A emphasizes object-oriented programming methodology with an emphasis on problem solving and algorithm development and is meant to be the equivalent of a first-semester course in computer science. It also includes the study of data structures and abstraction. The overall goal for designing a piece of software (a computer program) is to correctly solve the given problem. At the same time, this goal should encompass specifying and designing a program that is understandable, and can be adapted to changing circumstances. The design process needs to be based on a thorough understanding of the problem to be solved.
Interactive Applications: Applications, or computer applications, are softwareprograms that cause the host computer to perform useful tasks. The host computer with its hardware and operating system is sometimes called the platform. Applications can be deployed on various platforms including super computers, personal computers, kiosks, mobile devices, and dedicated gameconsoles. The word “Interactive” specifies that the application takes input from the user and responds. Interactive responses can include visual, audial, and tactile feedback, depending on the application design and the capabilitiesof the host platform. Interactive applications can serve a wide variety of purposes including education, training and familiarization; technical and scientific communications; even sales and marketing.
