Class Description

This course introduces students to the discipline of computer science. Covers algorithm development, data representation, logical expressions, sub-programs, and input/output operations using a structured programming language. Requires intensive lab work outside of class time.

This is a hybrid class, which combines set days for face-to-face classroom instruction with synchronous and asynchronous online learning experiences. This class is designed for students who enjoy the flexibility and independence online learning offers and who desire significant one-on-one interaction with the instructor. The online component includes podcasts, screencasts, web conferencing, and other online collaborative tools. Before starting this class, students should have basic computer skills including the ability to navigate the Internet, use email, and send attachments. In order to be successful in this class, students MUST have regular access to a computer with reliable Internet access. An orientation to the hybrid class experience will be provided at the first face-to-face class meeting. For questions about this hybrid class, please contact Steve Kaufman at skaufman@coloradomtn.edu.–
