COMPUTER PROGRAMMING IN C HONORS (9, 10, 11, 12)


.5 CREDIT/SEMESTER COURSE


Blended learning class - 4 days in-class/ 1 day online learning This course provides an introduction to computer programming. Students will begin with a history of computing and the software development cycle. Programs will be implemented using both simple and complex scientific and mathematical algorithms. Specific topics may include (but are not limited to): Simple Data types (including Boolean and string types), Input and Output, Decision and Iterative Control Structures, String Manipulation, and Functions.


Prerequisite: Algebra 1.


COMPUTER PROGRAMMING IN C++ HONORS (9, 10, 11, 12)


.5 CREDIT/SEMESTER COURSE


Blended learning class - 4 days in-class/ 1 day online learning This course introduces students to programming using the C++ language. Students will deepen their understanding of the algorithmic design process of structure programming through the use of functions. Specific topics may include(but are not limited to): Arrays (both one and two dimensions), Searching and Sorting Arrays, Dynamic Memory, Structured Data Types, and an introduction to Class Data Types.


Prerequisite: Algebra 1


ADVANCED PLACEMENT COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES (9, 10, 11, 12)


Blended learning class - 3 days in-class/ 2 days online learning Students in this class will learn the creative aspects of programming, abstractions, algorithms, large data sets, the Internet, cybersecurity concerns, and computer impacts. This course will provide students the opportunity to use technology to address real-world problems and build relevant solutions. Course work focuses on the innovative aspects of computing as well as the computational thinking practices that help students see how computing is relevant to many areas of their everyday lives. This course prepares students for the Advanced Placement examination in Computer Science Principles. Students will also be required by the College Board to create a set of artifacts to be submitted in addition to taking the AP test.


1 CREDIT Prerequisite: Algebra 1


ADVANCED PLACEMENT COMPUTER SCIENCE 1 (10, 11, 12)


Blended learning class - 3 days in-class/ 2 days online learning 1 CREDIT


This course extends computer programming concepts developed in Computer Programming C and C++ and applies them to Java, the language of the AP Computer Science examination. Content includes the exploration of classes, arrays, sets and pointers. Object-oriented programming methodology is studied. This course prepares students for the Advanced Placement examination in Computer Science.


Prerequisite: Computer Programming in C or C++ or teacher recommendation.


COMPUTER SCIENCE 2 ADVANCED AND EXTENDED STUDY (11, 12)


4 Blended learning class - 2 days in-class/ 3 days online learning 1 CREDIT


Using the programming language of Java, this course extends the concepts learned from Computer Science 1 AP and offers students the opportunity to explore and learn in an environment that requires a significant amount of independent study. Topics include advanced programming algorithms, computer memory and run-time comparisons, advanced class usage, inheritance, polymorphism, dynamic data structures, graphics and/or GUI interface. Students receive AP-weighted grades for this course.


Prerequisite: Computer Science 1 Advanced Placement. ENGLISH


ENGLISH 9 CAREER & COLLEGE PREP/HONORS 1 CREDIT English 9 includes a balanced program of reading, written or oral


response, language study, and vocabulary. Reading takes place both in and outside of class. The core curriculum emphasizes personal response to a variety of literary works. Frequent writing assignments and lessons in language study are related to the reading and include research skills. The amount and types of reading and writing, the work done outside of class, student responsibilities, and teacher expectations differ from one level of the course to another as indicated by the level descriptions. Each level expands upon the core curriculum with supplemental readings and assignments.


ENGLISH 9 ACCELERATED HONORS


Students study literature in thematic units. Daily class discussions are based on readings, and students are expected to participate by contributing relevant, constructive and probing comments and questions. Students also complete process writing assignments as well as research pieces. Vocabulary and grammar study are also required.


1 CREDIT Prerequisite: Students must have a teacher recommendation.


ENGLISH 10 CAREER & COLLEGE PREP/HONORS 1 CREDIT


English 10 continues the development of communication skills emphasized in English 9 with a balanced program of reading, written or oral response, language study, and vocabulary. The core curriculum emphasizes the study of literature. Units include the reading of essays, short stories, novels, poetry, and plays. Reading takes place both in and outside of class. Frequent writing assignments and lessons in language study build on previous competencies and include research skills. The amount and types of reading and writing, the work done outside of class, student responsibilities and teacher expectations differ from one level of the course to another. Each level expands upon the core curriculum with supplemental readings and assignments.


ENGLISH 10 ACCELERATED HONORS


Building on Accelerated Honors 9, Accelerated Honors 10 continues the study of thematic units in major literary works. Students write analytical responses to a variety of poems, short stories, and essays from the text, as well as other major literary works. Daily class discussions are based on the readings, and students are expected to participate by contributing relevant, constructive, probing comments and questions. Students complete research writing. Vocabulary and grammar study are also required.


1 CREDIT Prerequisite: Students must have a teacher recommendation.
