We’ve designed this course to help high-school students prepare for the Advanced Placement Computer Science test, and we’ll cover everything you need to know. It has been successfully used in classrooms for several years, and now its available for anyone, in school or not, through EdX. If you are an adult or a student who isn’t going to take the AP test, you are more than welcome to join! We go beyond the minimum required by the AP committee, introducing graphics, mouse commands, and other tools for real programmers.
We based this course on the principles of “lab-centric” instruction, in which lectures are replaced by hands-on activities. We won’t include long, fact-filled videos, and the webpages in this course will be your “textbook”.
