Computer Science 100: Computational Expression will be offered in the fall semester with Janyl Jumadinova. Lectures will be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9:00 am with a weekly lab session on Thursday at 2:30 pm.
An introduction to the principles of computer science with an emphasis on creative expression through the medium of a programming language. Participating in hands-on activities that often require teamwork, students learn the computational structures needed to solve problems and produce artifacts such as interactive games and computer-mediated art and music. Students also learn how to organize and document a program’s source code so that it effectively communicates with the intended users and maintainers. Additionally, the introduction includes an overview of the discipline of computer science and computational thinking. During a weekly laboratory session students use state-of-the-art technology to complete projects, reporting on their results through both written documents and oral presentations.
Prerequisite: Knowledge of elementary algebra.
Distribution Requirements: ME, SP.
