Computer Science

North’s computer department is leading the way. In programming, students have the opportunity to learn Pascal, C++, Visual Basic, Access, and other languages. They may also be selected for a Computer Science Internship, where they earn credit and get paid to program or work with hardware. In addition, those students who take the AP exam have been highly successful.

Computer Science I OUS: No NCAA: No Fine & Applied Arts : Yes Grade Level: 9-12

Computer Science I covers constructs and static data structures in a high level computer language. Problem solving skills and strategies are emphasized. This is the first in a series of courses designed to prepare students for the Advanced Placement Computer Science exam.

Prerequisite: Intro to Programming or Geometry

Computer Science II  Elective Credit=0.5 OUS: No NCAA: No Fine & Applied Arts : Yes Grade Level: 9-12

Computer Science II – Data Structures and recursion is a second semester of a high-level computer language, which continues preparation for the advanced placement Computer Science exam. It covers a range of topics from recursion through dynamic data structures. A student, after successfully completing this course, will be able to solve most problems using a high level programming language. Students will also be able to follow the programming process and be able to debug programs, both theirs and others.

Prerequisite: Computer Science I

AP Computer Science Projects  Elective Credit=0.5 OUS: No NCAA: No Fine & Applied Arts : No Grade Level: 10-12

Students will us the Java language to prepare for the Advanced Placement exam. Students will focus on projects using this language – especially looking at the AP case study. Students will also cover advanced topics of Microsoft Office products of Visual Basic focusing on the ability to communicate with others – a tutorial will be produced and a presentation of at least 30 minutes will be given to class covering topic. This material will lead to the AP Exam during the middle of the fourth quarter of the class.

Prerequisite: Computer Science II

AP Computer Science Language  Elective Credit=0.5 OUS: No NCAA: No Fine & Applied Arts : No Grade Level: 10-12

Students will use the language C++ to prepare for the Advanced Placement exam. Students will focus on projects using this language – especially looking at the AP case study. All material through recursion and dynamic data structures, therefore through the AB version of the AP CS exam, will be covered. This material will lead to the AP Exam during the middle of the 4th quarter of the class.

Prerequisite: Computer Science II
