Introduction to Computer Science
(This is part of the Young Coder program)
8 - 18 years old
Sessions 1: Basic Syntax
Students will use correct syntax when writing code.
Students will use proper sequencing when writing code.
Students will use arguments to input information into a method.
Students will use strings to input text data.
Students will use comments to document code.
Sessions 2: Loops
Students will write a program that includes an infinite loop.
Students will decompose a problem into smaller pieces and identify which pieces should be repeated.
Students will understand and use key terms: evaluate, expression, loop, while loop, while True loop.
Sessions 3: Variables
Students will create and clearly name a variable to store data.
Students will use a variable as an argument in a method.
Students will understand and use key terms: variable, value, data.
Sessions 4: Variables
Students will use an iterative process to develop a program that solves a problem.
Students will develop a program with sequences, simple loops, and variables.
Students will test and debug a program.
