    Students are introduced to the fundamental concepts of computer programming and the programming development cycle. Given varied problems students will analyze, design, implement, and test solutions utilizing a contemporary computer programming language. Solutions will become more complex as the course progresses. Students will ultimately utilize basic features of the chosen language such as simple data types, input/output statements, strings, control structures, and modules. Students will employ sound software engineering principles and debugging techniques. 

    This is an instructor-led course. There will be class discussions as well as quizzes and exams based on concepts presented in the Technology in Action textbook. The Microsoft Office software will be introduced through hands-on assignments from the Go! with Microsoft Office 2019 textbook.
