Grade 11 Computer Science

I will regularly offer extra help in room 230 on Mondays and Thursdays.

Sept 12: After a week, we've covered hardware, operating systems, and some history. Today and tomorrow, classes start learning about binary and other number systems.

/* Computer Science at Northern is taught in Java. In class, we use the BlueJ IDE. It's free! You can get it here. Make sure you get the JDK first, or get the combined install. */

Some of the topics we study:
// Methods
// Decisions
// Loops
// Arrays
// Object-oriented programming
// Ethics in computing

Most of the assessments are either quizzes or programming assignments. There should be a couple of research projects as well.

If you are ahead of the curriculum, please use some of your class time helping students who aren't.
