Format of Course
The entirely web-based curriculum is made up of a series of learning items that introduce students to some fundamentals of programming. Each lesson is made up of short video tutorials, example programs, and programming exercises. The course is designed as an integrated, 2-4 hour long mini-unit, though schools implement it in a variety of ways.
Who is it for?
The Exploring Collisions in Physics mini-unit is designed for complete beginners with no previous background in computer science, though they should have some knowledge of algebra and basic understanding of the physics of moving bodies. The course is highly visual, dynamic, and interactive and should be used with high school math students.
