Computer Science is a class taught by Ms. Taricco. Throughout the course of the year, we complete three major projects: creating a personal website (what you are looking at right now), creating a software product, and creating a mobile application to help out the community. In order to carry out these projects, we use the coding platform to learn various programming languages. We started the year by learning CSS and HTML to structure and design screens. As we got deeper into the course, we began learning the fundamentals of java. We have covered many topics, including arrays, iterations, boolean statements, different data types, and testing the validation and accuracy of specific algorithms. In December, we began participating in the American Computer Science League (ACSL), a competition for high school students with four challenges.
