Comp Science & Software Eng A/B *Project Lead the Way Course

Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSE) is a new PLTW course being offered for the 2014-2015 school year. Students work in teams to develop computational thinking and solve problems. The course covers the College Board’s new CS Principles framework. The course does not aim to teach mastery of a single programming language but aims instead to develop computational thinking, to generate excitement about the field of computing, and to introduce computational tools that foster creativity. Students will create apps for mobile devices, automate tasks in a variety of languages, find patterns in data, and interpret simulations. Students collaborate to create and present solutions that can improve people’s lives.
