Computer Programming and Software Development
AP Computer Science A
Please check your Google Classroom and Sapphire Community Portal Page for information related to the courses, as well as, other pertinent CASHS information.
Algebra I- The class will have a Google Classroom where the daily agenda will be posted with most of the needed resources and materials. Assignments and activities may come from various sources, from hand-held paper to online sources. Students will be given instruction and will be able to use each source that is used in class. Assignments may be graded based on completion or accuracy.
Computer Programming and Software Development- The course will be in a blended format with work being required to be completed from different resources, such as Edgenuity, code.org, and the main resource: Carnegie Mellon University CS1 (CMU CS Academy CS1). (Do not let the title scare you! Students have really enjoyed this resource....graphics and animation programming) Due dates will be very important to meet in this course, since the course builds on itself. Any missed work DOES need to be completed and not skipped, especially in the CMU CS1 resource. Students will be expected to complete assignments based on coding specific exercises, written journal work, reflections, and Creative Task projects throughout the units.
AP Computer Science A- The course will be in a blended format based on a flipped classroom setup and based on the software language of Java. This will require students to access given instructional content of the course outside of the classroom and be ready to participate with the content in activities and labs during class time. There will be a Google Classroom Agenda that the students can access in order to keep current with the course. Students will be using Runestone e-textbook, AP Classroom and its resources, and the IDE online browser of Repl.it and CodingRoom.com. Students will be expected to work together in pair programming/collaboration on tasks.
