Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
This guide to a 4-unit, required high school computer science course emphasizes problem solving and computer programming and is designed for use with a variety of hardware configurations and programming languages. An overview covers the program rationale, goals and objectives, program design and description, program implementation, time allotment, language requirement, format and sequencing, hardware, software, textbooks, and student evaluation. Objectives and suggested learning activities are listed for each unit. The first unit introduces the components of computer systems and their interrelationships, hardware and software development, and the use of stored programs. Unit 2 stresses the development of general problem solving techniques using algorithms expressed in flowcharts or psuedo-code. Unit 3 covers programming in psuedo-machine language, psuedo-assembly language, and high-level language. The final unit on programming techniques explains debugging and characteristics of a good program. Appendices contain information on spectre opcodes, structured programming, conditional statements, and suggestions for assignments. (LMM)
