Central Texas Coll., Killeen.
The curriculum guide is designed to help high school administrators, teachers, and others to develop or expand a program to introduce all students to general computer capabilities, to provide certain students with a problem solving tool, or to prepare other students for entry into the job market. Help is given in planning and organizing the program, curriculum outlines for the four high school years are included, and the courses are described briefly. Fourteen instructional units cover advanced COBOL programing, beginning keypunch, business applications development, computer operations, FORTRAN applications programing, introduction to COBOL programing, introduction to computers, introduction to programing, keypunch and data entry, office machines, procedures for organizing information, programing projects, punched card data processing I, and punched card data processing II. A section outlines what library support is necessary for the curriculum. A chapter on facilities, equipment, and costs involves such things as transporting students to computer facilities, terminals only, building requirements, acoustics, air conditioning, safety precautions, and others.
