Course Description

CS 1110: Introduction to Computing: A Design and Development Perspective (fall, spring, summer). 4 credits.
Assumes basic high school mathematics (no calculus) but no programming experience.

Introduces programming and problem-solving using Python. Emphasizes principles of software development, style, and testing. Topics include an operational model of Python execution, procedures and functions, iteration, recursion, lists, strings, algorithms, exceptions, object-oriented programming, and GUIs (graphical user interfaces). Biweekly labs provide guided practice on the computer, with staff present to help. Assignments use graphics and GUIs to help develop fluency and understanding.

Forbidden Overlap: Due to an overlap in content, students will not receive credit for both CS 1110 and CS 1112. Students may not enroll in CS 1110 if they have taken or are also enrolled in CS 2110/ENGRD 2110, CS 2112, or have taken or are currently enrolled in a course offered or cross-listed with a CS number 3000 or above.
