Compsci 4, FALL 2006
Introduction to Programming via
Animation and 3D Virtual Worlds
- Sep. 4, 2006 - Link your classwork from Aug 29 to your CompSci 4 web page.
Thus you should link to classwork from Aug 29, and Aug 31.
- Class starts on Tuesday, Aug. 29.
CompSci 4 is an introductory programming course that
teaches fundamental computer science concepts. This version of CompSci
4 uses the tool Alice to create 3-D virtual worlds. You will learn
programming constructs such as looping, selection, and data structures,
along with how to
control objects (raise hands, flap wings, move, turn, spin, walk, etc.).
This is a hands on course. During class we will be working in pairs
on the computer to design 3-D virtual worlds. Outside of class projects
will be done in pairs and singly.
CompSci 4 will introduce you to the world of computer science and you
will learn how to make impressive animations for your other courses
If you want to take a second computer science course after this course,
CompSci 4 will prepare you for CompSci 6.
If you have taken CompSci 1, you can take this course. If you have
taken CompSci 6 or CompSci 100 then you cannot get credit for this course.
No experience necessary, this is an introductory course.
