COM201

Level 2 Computer Science

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: J. Gottschalk

In this course you will learn how to write programs in Python. We will also learn how to create  databases with a website front end. The external covers a range of Computer Science concepts that change each year but are all fascinating.

METHODS OF ASSESSMENT
This course is solely Achievement Standards which includes one external assessment.

Recommended Prior Learning

Open entry but success in COM101 and strong mathematical / logic skills will help ensure student success.


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Headphones which plug into a standard headphone jack (not Apple) for accessing sound in tutorial videos.

Pathway

This course can lead on to COM301 / DTI301. Students with a background in Computer Science / Programming are well placed to continue on to University or to find work in the well-paying IT industry (which currently has a worldwide shortage of trained professionals).
