CS 112 is an introduction to computational thinking and problem solving, including elementary computing concepts such as variables, loops, functions, lists, conditionals, concurrency, data types, simple object oriented concepts, I/O, events, syntax, structured programming, basic concepts of computer organization, editing and the influence of computers in modern society. Read a more in-depth explanation of course topics and outcomes.
CS 112 is now available for dual credit as a yearlong course that meets Idaho’s graduation requirements for senior math.
Secondary teachers who are interested in teaching CS 112 for dual credit are invited to participate in a workshop sponsored by the University of Idaho Department of Computer Science. This workshop is designed to provide discipline-specific training and orientation that includes the course curriculum, assessment criteria, pedagogy, course philosophy and administrative responsibilities as a dual credit teacher.
$300 teacher stipends are generously provided by the Idaho STEM Action Center.
