Applications of Computers in Science and Technology (Regents) This course is primarily concerned with the presentation of data, especially data generated from the study of science and mathematics. Students will use word processing, spreadsheets, charting, databases, desktop publishing, and presentation software to compete their assignments. Microsoft Office and Microsoft Publisher will be used for this course.

Computer Graphics (Regents) Prerequisite: Ideally, students should have completed Computer Programming I and Computer Programming II (Regents or Honors) prior to taking this course. Students who have completed Introduction to Computer Operations (ICO) and Computer Programming I Regents may take this course, although it is not recommended. This course is a programming course. Students produce computer graphics via programming using the programming language C++.

Mathematical Applications of Computer Graphics (Regents) Prerequisites: Students must have completed Computer Programming I and Computer Programming II (Regents or Honors) and Sequential Math II prior to taking this course. This course has three components: 1. Computer graphics programming (25%) using C++, 2. Spreadsheets and charting (25%), and 3. Computer aided design (CAD) (50%). Any student who meets the prerequisites, but it is especially appropriate for those students who plan to take the Principles of Engineering class, as seniors may take this course.

HTML, Java, and the Web Prerequisite: Students must have completed Computer Programming I and Computer Programming II (Regents or Honors) prior to taking this course. Students will learn how to create web pages using HTML programming and Java coding. This is a programming class.
