C – Introduction to Computer Programming, College ICS3CI

This course introduces students to computer programming concepts and practices. Students will write and test computer programs, using various problem-solving strategies. They will learn the fundamentals of program design and apply a software development life-cycle model to a software development project. Students will also learn about computer environments and systems, and explore environmental issues related to computers, safe computing practices, emerging technologies, and postsecondary opportunities in computer-related fields. Students will perform the various stages of software development by applying problem-solving skills (thus good Math skills recommended) to create their own programs making use of control and data structures and on and off-line resources with the final project being the creation of a game/software. Students will be writing programs in Java and using JavaScript for graphics and animation programming. Other computer science concepts are explored including careers , ethics and emerging technologies.
COURSE NOTE: This course can count as a group 3 compulsory credit.

TYPE: College
GRADE: 11

U – Introduction to Computer Science, University ICS3UI

This course introduces students to computer science. Students will design software independently and as part of a team, using industry-standard programming tools and applying the software development life-cycle model. They will also write and use subprograms within computer programs. Students will develop creative solutions for various types of problems as their understanding of the computing environment grows. They will also explore environmental and ergonomic issues, emerging research in computer science, and global career trends in computer-related fields. Students will perform the various stages of software development by applying problem-solving skills (thus good Math skills recommended) to create their own programs making use of control and data structures and on and off-line resources with the final project being the creation of a game/software.

C – Computer Programming, College ICS4CI

This course further develops students’ computer programming skills. Students will learn object-oriented programming concepts, create object-oriented software solutions, and design graphical user interfaces. Student teams will plan and carry out a software development project using industry-standard programming tools and proper project management techniques. Students will also investigate ethical issues in computing and expand their understanding of environmental issues, emerging technologies, and computer-related careers. This course continues from the ICS 3C course (required) in that students will develop their own programs and software but using more advanced programming software, algorithms, data structures and file management techniques. Students will be extending their skills in Java and JavaScript to include object oriented program design. Ethics and computer technologies will also be explored.

U – Computer Science, University ICS4UI

This course enables students to further develop knowledge and skills in computer science. Students will use modular design principles to create complex and fully documented programs, according to industry standards. Student teams will manage a large software development project, from planning through to project review. Students will also analyse algorithms for effectiveness. They will investigate ethical issues in computing and further explore environmental issues, emerging technologies, areas of research in computer science, and careers in the field. This course continues from the ICS 3U course (required) in that students will develop their own programs and software but using more advanced programming software, algorithms, data structures and file management techniques. Students will be extending their skills in Java and JavaScript to include object oriented program design. Ethics and computer technologies will also be explored.
