The units that we will cover this semester will vary and will include coding, computer language, binary, networking, and other fundamentals of computers. The textbook that we will use for this course is Computer Science Principles: The Foundational Concepts of Computer Science. In addition, we will also use online resources while learning this material.
Unit 1: Computing Systems. The structures, functions, and interactions between application software, system software, and hardware with exploration into the relationship between hardware and software using the Internet.
Unit 2: Network and the Internet and Cyber Security. Information is broken down into smaller piece, transmitted as “packets” through multiple devices over networks and the Internet, and reassembled once it reaches its destination. Data can be threatened by malware, ransomware, and other computer attacks, using appropriate terminology.
Unit 3: Data and Analysis and Impacts of Computing. Data elements organization and storage. Use computer tools and methods for collaboration on a project to increase connectivity of people in different cultures and career fields.
Unit 4: Algorithms, Programming, and Coding. Develop a program working individually and in teams using text-based language. Identification of expected output of the program and any issues that they may have had along the way.
Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.
