IT0: Discrete Math and Programming Logic Topics as a Hybrid Alternative to CS0
Martin, Nancy L.
Information Systems Education Journal, v13 n1 p30-44 Jan 2015
This paper describes the development of a hybrid introductory course for students in their first or second year of an information systems technologies degree program at a large Midwestern university. The course combines topics from discrete mathematics and programming logic and design, a unique twist on most introductory courses. The objective of the new course is to better prepare students for more advanced computing courses. Two primary drivers motivated development of the new course: 1) faculty evidence of deficient foundation skills in advanced level courses, and 2) consideration of program accreditation criteria.
