    Course: Intro to Computer Science in Python 3 |Module: Introduction to Programming with Turtle Graphics
    Instructor : Ms. Ashley Brooks
    Email Address:brooksas@orange.k12.nj.us



     In this CodeHS introduction to Computer Science in Python 3 curriculum scholars learn the foundations of computer science and basic programming, with an emphasis on helping scholars develop logical thinking and problem solving skills. Once scholars complete the CodeHS Introduction to Computer Science in Python course, they will have learned material equivalent to a semester college introductory course in Computer Science and be able to program using Python 3.


    In the beginning of this course, scholars are introduced to coding with turtle graphics. Scholars will begin to recognize programs as sequences and groups of commands. Scholars will learn a few basic commands and then apply them right away by writing their first program.





    Students will be able to:

    • Define programming/coding
    • Use basic Tracy commands
    • Write their first program

    Google Classroom:   

    Links to worksheets, PowerPoints, and other class materials will be posted here. This is also where you will upload assignments for submission and view teacher feedback.   



    Grades will be available to students and parents through Genesis.   



    The following provides an approximate breakdown of how each type of assignment contributes to your overall performance in the class.   


    10% Homework  

    20% Quizzes  

    20% Classwork   

    25% Summative Evaluations    

    25% Projects  


    *Note: Every week there will be an assessment of some sort (i.e. quiz, test, project) and homework will be assigned every class. It is expected each student to program roughly 5hrs/week (includes inside and outside class time)
