Computer Science A (cs 1243)
This workshop is designed to help prepare computer science teachers on the content and ideas in the AP* Computer Science A exam. Participants must have previous experience programming in a fully-featured programming language (examples include C, C++, Pascal, Fortran, BASIC, Visual Basic, Python, Scheme, Java, etc.) but no knowledge of the AP* curriculum or Java in particular is assumed or expected. We will focus on the content of the AP* curriculum, including object-oriented programming, Java, sorting, searching, recursion, and more. The goal is to bring teachers together so that they can come up to speed, expand their knowledge, and/or trade teaching techniques.
