This course or its equivalent is a prerequisite to all Computer Science II classes at GOA This Computational Thinking Course focuses on solving problems, designing systems, and understanding human behavior. It has applications not only in computer science, but also a myriad other fields of study. This introductory level course centers on thinking like a computer scientist, especially when it comes to understanding how computer scientists define and solve problems. The Logical First Step: Understanding the Basics of Computer Science Students begin the course by developing an understanding of what computer science is, how it can be used by people who are not programmers, and why it’s a useful skill for all people to cultivate. Within this context, students are exposed to the power and limits of computational thinking. Reading Between the Lines: Online Programming Classes for Beginners Students are introduced to entry-level programming constructs that will help them apply their knowledge of computational thinking in practical ways. They will learn how to read code and pseudocode, as well as begin to develop strategies for debugging programs. By developing computational thinking and programming skills, students will have the core knowledge to define and solve problems in future computer science courses. Course Prerequisites While this course would be beneficial for any student without formal training as a programmer or computer scientist, it is intended for those with no programming experience. GOA is offering 14 of its most popular semester classes in an intensive 7-week format. Most of these courses cover a semester's worth of material and expect a 10-12 hour per week commitment from students. For Geometry or Spanish 1, which are designed to replace yearlong high school courses, students should expect to dedicate 15-20 hours per week. Our summer term runs from June 15 to July 31, 2020.
