basics of computer programming along with the basics of computer science. The material
emphasizes computational thinking and helps develop the ability to solve complex problems.
This course covers the basic building blocks of programming along with other central elements
of computer science. It gives a foundation in the tools used in computer science and prepares
students for further study in computer science, including AP Computer Science Principles and
AP Computer Science A courses.
The course allows students to work independently in text-based Python. The course also
includes a career focus, where at the end of units, students meet (via videos) individuals from
different industries who work in coding (medical, music, etc.).
