Grade 12. Students must complete 3 credits of HS math and have completed an Algebra 2 course to enroll.

This course is designed to review and reinforce Algebraic Concepts necessary for success in a first-year college credit bearing math course. The course aims to prepare students for collegiate level mathematics thinking, communicating, problem solving and applying the mathematical practice standards.

This course was collaboratively developed with the DuPage County High Schools and the College of DuPage. Successful completion of this course will result in placement in a college credit bearing math course at COD and several other colleges.

Grade 9-12. Prerequisite Algebra 1. Weighted Grade.

This course offers a multidisciplinary approach to teaching the underlying principles of computation. The course will introduce students to the creative aspects of programming, abstractions, algorithms, large data sets, the Internet, cybersecurity concerns, and computing impacts. The course is designed to be equivalent to a one-semester introductory college computing course and complements AP Computer Science A as it aims to broaden participation in the study of Computer Science. AP Computer Science Principles also gives students the opportunity to use current technologies to create computational artifacts for both self-expression and problem solving.

Students who successfully complete this course and the AP Computer Science A examination may receive college credit and/or a higher placement for a college course.
