PLTW Computer Science Essentials introduces students to coding fundamentals through an approachable, block-based programming language where they will have early success in creating usable apps. As students sharpen their computational thinking skills, they will transition to programming environments that reinforce coding fundamentals by displaying block programming and text based programming side-by-side. Finally, students will learn the power of text-based programming as they are introduced to the Python® programming language.
NEW! March 2, 2018: For practical reasons, to make it easier on all of us, and simply because this whole thing is an experiment anyway, I'm changing the hard and soft deadline policy slightly. Instead of the hard deadline being the day we move onto the next activity, it will be the Friday of the week we finish. It's win-win because you get a little extra time most weeks and I don't have to carve time out of an already packed weekday to find time to grade your OneNote. The soft deadline will continue to be one week later, and so it will always be the following Friday.
January 8, 2018: I have made a new version of the Regrade Request Form from the original Google form in order to submit your request to regrade a page of your OneNote Class Notebook. Click Regrade Request Form at the top of the page.
