eLearn - Introduction to Computer Science ICS3UE
This course introduces students to computer science. Students will design software independently and as part of a team, using industry-standard programming tools and applying the software development life-cycle model. They will also write and use subprograms within computer programs. Students will develop creative solutions for various types of problems as their understanding of the computing environment grows. They will also explore environmental and ergonomic issues, emerging research in computer science, and global career trends in computer-related fields.
COURSE NOTE: This eLearning course may be an alternative for students with strong independent work skills when the regular day school course is full or unavailable. A separate application is required. Make an appointment with your guidance counsellor to discuss suitability.
