Entity:University of Nebraska High School
Description:AP Computer Science A 1 is the first semester of a 2 semester sequence that  is equivalent to a one-semester, college-level course in computer science. The course emphasizes both object-oriented and imperative problem solving and design using Java language. These techniques represent proven approaches for developing solutions that can scale up from small, simple problems to large, complex problems. The course introduces students to computer science with fundamental topics that specifically include using JDK tools and running Java programs, using an IDE, object-oriented programming, Java syntax and style, objects and classes, logic and control statements, algorithms and iterations, strings and arrays, and the ethical and social implications of computer use and the Internet. All instructions in this course are written for a PC with Windows 7 operating system. You may need to make adjustments if you are using a different platform or operating system. Students will need to download both Java SDK and an IDE such as JCreator, along with various programming components and student guides from the online course or from the textbook publisher's website for use in course activities and projects.
