AP Computer Science Principles is a foundation course in computer programming for students planning to study in STEAM fields, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Students enter the course with varying skill levels. In order to meet the diverse needs and appeal to student interests, I try whenever possible to teach concepts inside of contexts. The AP Computer Science Principles course will work with the Amazon Future Engineers Program, AFE, and the code.org platform for curriculum. Students will need to create an AP college-board, Edhesive, and Code.org accounts.
It is my expectation every student in the class will take the AP exam for the course in May - Registration on College-board site by End of September. Exam includes two parts,Multiple choice and Project.
Instruction through Edhesive.com - AFE Program and Code.org
All materials can be found on Schoology.
In AP Computer Science Principles, students learn how to creatively address real-world issues with the tools and processes of computer science.
K-12 computer science curriculum for AP Computer A, AP Computer Principles, and Introduction to Computer Science in Python.
Every student has the potential to change the world. Help them get started. #CSforGood
