THIS COURSE IS A PREREQUISITE FOR MOBILE MAKERS 1
STUDENTS WILL LEARN THE 5 BIG IDEAS BY DEVELOPING iOS MOBILE APPS IN SWIFTUI
About the course
The AP® Computer Science Principles course is designed to be the equivalent of a first-semester introduction to computer science course at the college level. It focuses on five Big Ideas that encompass foundational concepts of computer science.
1. Creative Development
3. Algorithms and Programming
4. Computing Systems and Networks
5. Impact on Computing
Each Big Idea is divided into a series of Enduring Understandings that students should understand about that Big Idea. These are broken up into specific Learning Objectives, which are linked to one or more Essential Knowledge statements.
Students will learn the Essential Knowledge statements to demonstrate an understanding of a particular Learning Objective. In general, each Learning Objective covers about one class period worth of material.
In addition, the AP® Computer Science Principles course contains six Computational Thinking Practices that describe how students will explore the different Learning Objectives. Students can think of the Learning Objectives as the what and the Computational Thinking Practices as the how.
