Introduction to Computer Science

Intro to Computer Science – Computers are here to stay. They are everywhere. You can’t run an appliance or drive a car without one anymore. Their power continues to improve at an unbelievable rate. But how do they actually work? Why do they work? What can we do with them?

Computer Science has become a very broad topic. It includes computer logic, programming, and design. In this course, students will explore computers from many angles. They will first look at the history of the computer. They have come such a long way that understanding their path helps to understand where we are and where we are going with computers.

Next, the logic of a computer must be explored. Once students really understand the way computers “think”, they will be well on their way to knowing how to use them best.

The class will talk about Windows computers, Apple computers, Google Chromebooks, and more. We’ll compare these different systems and get introductions to using them all.

Finally, this course will go over the fundamental uses of word processors, spreadsheet programs, and presentation software with specific emphasis on applications used by the students in the class. We will compare Microsoft, Google, Apple, Corel, and LibreOffice if a need exists.

Students will get a thorough introduction to:

  • Basic Parts of a Computer
  • Differences Between Components, Peripherals, and Accessories
  • Common Tasks
  • File Management
  • File Types
  • Python Programming
  • Microsoft Word / Google Docs / Apple Pages
  • Microsoft Excel / Google Sheets / Apple Numbers
  • Microsoft PowerPoint / Google Slides / Apple Keynote

This course is a one-credit full-year course for junior and senior high school students.
