CodeHS Lessons

Compare and contrast examples of high level and low level programming languages. This intent of this standard is for the student to be provided an introduction to differences between high and low level computer programming languages. The student is not required to write a computer program in high-level and low-level programming languages to meet this standard. Low-level language typically refers to machine code or assembly language, which computers can use without translation. Programs written using high-level languages, such as Java and C++, are closer to human language and must be translated to machine code before a computer can use them
