Introduction to Computer Programming - grades 8-12

This course is an introduction to and overview of computer programming.  We will begin with programming in Scripted languages including HTML and JavaScript.  Since these are “Web based” languages, we will be developing web pages using HTML and JavaScript.  We continue problem solving and programming in the C++ language, with an emphasis on the procedural style of programming and problem solving.  Included in the study of the C++ language will be the C++ programming environment, statements, commands, input and output streams, variables, constants, simple data types, branching, indefinite loops, definite loops, functions, debugging, programming style, and graphics.  We also include an introduction to Java, Java applets and Java graphics and graphics animation.  The Java applets will be used in web pages also.
