  • Classroom Resources:
    • All Classes-

    Files are kept in a "Google Classroom" to maintain copyright for some of our course materials. 

    Students will receive an access code from their teacher. Once students have joined their course, they will have access to

    our class resources, assignments, and files.  


    Tutoring Times:

    Tuesday and Thursday 3:15-3:45PM

    Room 217 

    *Later times and other times can be made by appointment.* 


    Weekly Class Objectives: 

    Computer Science 1: 

     

    • Students will continue using block coding in Java to create an "Alice" animation. 
    • Students will explore prcedural and object oriented programming using methods that contain both functions and procedures
    • Students will build a foundational understanding for working with inheratance and classes in coding
    • Students will create interactive consoles by building event listeners into their coded animation

     

    Computer Science 2: 
    • Students will be reviewing concepts of branching statements: if-else and switch-case in coding labs as they create a coin toss game and an art/rainbow application
    Computer Science 3: 
    • Students will be reviewing concepts of branching statements: if-else and switch-case in coding labs as they create a coin toss game and an art/rainbow application
    • Students will incorporate GUIs (pop-up windows, buttons, and/or scroll bars)and an understanding of comparing Strings inside decision structures
    • Students will learn how to insert a GIF or icon into the logic of their code
    STEM 3: Engineering Design and Presentation 2-
    • Students will design a hot drink cup using CAD software. Students will 3D print their design as an ornament or keychain. Students must print within the required dimensions, and it must be scaled to print with accuracy and fidelity.
    • Students must document their design showing they applied CAD design concepts from last week using sketch and features such as: fillets, shell, thread, revolve boss/base, convert entities, splines, mirror entities, and/or sketch patterns.
     
    STEM 4: Engineering Design and Problem Solving(UT Dual Enrollment Option)-
     
    • Students will be calculating exposure time and testing their camera in the darkroom
    • Students will create a troubleshooting document showing thier testing and adjustments for their camera
