Computational Computer Science - Zero introduces students to the basics of programming through multimedia, and then uses these programming techniques to examine basic functions that draw lines and curves. At the end of the course students use these same techniques to explore the principles underlying familiar physical processes.
Computational CS-Zero uses easily taught and adaptable programming concepts as a framework for modeling the behavior of physical objects. The course reinforces the concepts and intuitions of pre-calculus and mathematical modeling by engaging students in hands-on simulations of physical systems. Computational CS-Zero teaches the foundations of programming while promoting mathematical competence necessary for academic success.
Computational CS-Zero is sponsored by NSF's CCLI program and is a participant in the Computing Alliance of Hispanic Serving Institutions.
