Introduces students to computational thinking and the role it plays in problem solving. Students will learn to break down problems into steps that can be performed by machines, and to write small programs to solve problems and accomplish goals.
Introduction to computational thinking
Problem decomposition and abstraction
Procedures and algorithms
Introduction to data structures
Testing and debugging
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
