Example text

This curriculum provides elementary school students with foundational concepts in computer science. It integrates basic skills in technology with simple ideas about algorithmic thinking. Hands-on activities help ensure that students meet these goals. org. Level II (grade 9 or 10): Computer Science in the Modern World. This course is designed to be accessible for all students, whether they are collegebound or workplace bound. ), computer networks, the Internet, and algorithmic problem-solving. It also exposes students to computing careers and ethical issues.

In the previous section we referred to the first three elements. In this section we elaborate on the couple of didactic principles. Two important objectives in our textbook writing were the ease of comprehension and the development of a scientific discipline. In order to achieve these objectives, we motivated each newly taught element, and repeatedly exemplified ordered program designs. This didactic approach, together with the web availability of the materials, was also aimed at assisting one in self-studying the materials.

A topic is motivated by several algorithmic problems, each emphasizing a different element of the topic. For instance, the chapter presenting conditional execution is taught using nine different algorithmic problems, corresponding to various facets of alternations, such as: the if-then structure, the if-then-else structure, nested if structures, simple and structured conditions, and more. Each algorithmic problem is preceded by a motivating verbal introduction followed by the problem description.
