Welcome to Designing Solutions Through Programming!

  • I have met my teacher, and learned about his hopes, dreams, and goals
  • I have introduced myself and discussed what I hope to learn and my goals
  • I have seen the "big ideas" in this course and looked at sample projects, and I've seen the week-by-week plan
  • I have thought through our first problem and been introduced to computational thinking
  • I have had some of my questions answered and thought of some more


Homework.png What is our home learning?

  • Hey! It's your first day and you probably don't even have your computers yet. Please just come to our next class with questions or wonderings about computer science or this class. We will have lots of setup to do!


Target.png How am I being assessed today?

I will assess you formatively today, and make a professional judgement to what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. you understand our learning material. I will use observation, your written work, answers to questions, and contribution to class discussions as data to make my decisions.

I will also ask you to complete a self-assessment which I will use to help me guage how well you think you understand our material in class.
