It is mandatory to watch a video available in Canvas platform to enrolled students, explaining assessments given in the course and where to find them. To ensure completion of orientation, students must submit answers to questions I ask in the orientation video before Jun 21, Friday, or else will be dropped from the class roster. Students preferring a face-to-face setting for orientation should meet the professor on Jun 17, at 4:00 PM, in room SA 115. Students in the waiting list should attend this face to face orientation. Add codes will be issued if class roster is not impacted. Mandatory midterms and final exam are proctored by the professor (face-to-face), or done online if students install the Google Chrome extension Proctorio on their computers and have a camera attached. Midterms are scheduled on the following days: Jun 26, Jul 3, Jul 12, Jul 19, Jul 24, in room SA 115 at 4:00 PM. Final exam is schedule on Jul 25, at 4:00 PM, in room SA 115.

COMSC 020 - Introduction to Programming
Grading: L   |   Advisory Level  —   Read: 3   |  Write: 3  | Math: 2
Transfer Status: CSU |  Degree Applicable: AA/AS
This course is an introduction to basic computer programming concepts using both the procedural and an object-oriented paradigm. It is intended for non-computer science majors, and for students interested in COMSC 075 but would like a more gradual entry into computing fundamentals. Topics include hands-on practice with software engineering tools, simple programs, variables, control structures, functions, input/output and introduction to abstraction. Specifications, adherence to style guidelines, and the importance of testing to ensure that programs are usable, robust and modifiable, will be addressed throughout the course.
