    639 Introduction to Computer Science (INTO CS) DOE# 4803

    Introduction to Computer Science allows students to explore the world of computer science. Students will gain a broad understanding of the areas composing computer science. Additionally, there is a focus on the areas of computer programming, gaming/mobile development, and artificial intelligence/robotics. 

     

    678 Computer Science I (COM SCI I) DOE# 4801

    Computer Science I introduces the structured techniques necessary for the efficient solution of business-related computer programming logic problems and coding solutions into a high-level language. The fundamental concepts of programming are provided through explanations and effects of commands and hands-on utilization of lab equipment to produce accurate outputs. Topics include program flowcharting, pseudo coding, and hierarchy charts as a means of solving problems. The course covers creating file layouts, print charts, program narratives, user documentation, and system flowcharts for business problems; algorithm development and review, flowcharting, input/output techniques, looping, 319 Indiana Department of Education 2021-2022 High School Course Titles and Descriptions modules, selection structures, file handling, control breaks, and offers students an opportunity to apply skills in a laboratory environment.
