COMPUTER SCIENCE

 

The Computer Science program at Wilson Magnet High School is designed to meet the needs of students in the magnet program based upon their goals and preferences. Students must meet a three and a half credit computer science requirement. Most students take more than the three and one-half credits required, with some students completing as many as five and one-half credits. All students in the magnet program take a core of courses, which includes two credits of computer programming and a one-half credit course in the general use of computer technology.

Core Courses for Students In The Magnet Program

(All courses are 1 credit unless otherwise indicated).

 

Computer Communications This introductory course is designed to give the student an overview of the use of the computer at home, as well as in the professional setting. Students will use a variety of programs as part of this course. .5 credits

 

Introduction to Computer Operations (Local) This course is designed to introduce the student to the operation of a computer and to computer programming. A substantial part of the course is devoted to introductory programming topics.

 

Computer Programming I (Regents) This is an introductory course in programming using the C++ programming language.

 

Computer Programming I (Honors) This is an introductory course in programming using the C++ programming language. Additional topics and more in-depth discussions are presented beyond the scope of the regent’s level of the course.

 

Pre IB Computer Science (Honors) This is an introductory course in programming using the C++ programming language. This course is designed to begin to prepare students for the IB Computer Science exams, which will be given in grades 11 and 12.

 

Computer Programming II (Regents) This course is a continuation of the study of computer programming using the C++ language.

 

Computer Programming II (Honors) This course is a continuation of the study of computer programming using the C++ language. Additional topics and more in-depth discussions are presented beyond the scope of the regent’s level of the course.

 

AP Computer Science A (Honors) This is a college level course roughly equivalent to the first semester of work taken by a computer science major. Students taking this course take the AP exam in May. The college you attend may grant you credit if you get a three or higher (on a scale of 1 to 5) on the exam.

 

AP Computer Science AB (Honors) This is a college level course roughly equivalent to the second semester of work taken by a computer science major. Students taking this course take the AP exam in May. The college you attend may grant you credit if you get a three or higher (on a scale of 1 to 5) on the exam.

 

IB Computer Science SL – This is a college level course in computer science for those students in the International Baccalaureate program. Students are required as part of this course to complete a substantial independent programming project. C++ is used as the programming language for this course. SL indicates that this course is designed at the Standard Level.

IB Computer Science HL – This is a college level course in computer science for those students in the International Baccalaureate program. Students are required as part of this course to complete a substantial independent programming project. C++ is used as the programming language for this course. HL indicates that this course is designed at the Higher Level.
