Welcome to AP Computer Science!
If you are interested in pursuing a career in any branch of engineering or computer science in college and you want the advantage of knowing how to program in advance, take this class!
This is a year long course that emphasizes object oriented programming methodology with an emphasis on problem solving and algorithm development and is designed to be the equivalent of a first-semester college course in Computer Science.
This class will follow the approved College Board curriculum for the AP Computer Science A course. We will be using Java (Java 2 Platform Standard Edition Development Kit 7.0 written as J2SE SDK 1.7) to learn the fundamentals of programming and Computer Science. The AP Computer Science A exam which is given on Friday, May 8, 2020 is required.
Topics covered in AP Computer Science A :
Control statements - if, while, for
Object Oriented Programming with classes and objects
Sorting and Searching
