Introduction to Computer Programming: In this course, students will construct computer programs in one or more languages. This course provides comprehensive instruction on four popular Microsoft Office 2007 programs: Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint. Students will structure, create, document, and debug programs, and as they progress, more emphasis will be placed on design, style, clarity, and efficiency. Students will apply the skills they learn to relevant applications such as modeling, data management, graphics, and text-processing, and engage in interdisciplinary projects. Additionally, students will learn about web design and basic computer programming using Visual Basic. Other computer languages, such as BASIC, JAVA, Pascal, C++, and COBOL, may be used. As an honors level course, content will be covered at an accelerated pace. Students will study topics at a deeper level and will be expected to complete more independent coursework and assignments.
