Welcome to Mr. Sheehan's AP Computer Science Principals 2020 - 2021
Thank you for visiting our classroom page. The AP Computer Science Principals course here on campus is designed to build and develop the Computer Science knowledge and skill in the students that proceed through the course, to manage, grow and maximize their understanding of the content area. We work on the fundamental computational practices, skills and content to create a deeper understand of the industry of computer science and its reach globally, economically and personally. The goal of the course is preparing our students to not only excel in the AP content but to prepare themselves for the rigors of education at the next level.
As you all know we are begining our year virtually. I have emailed all of our classes students and parents the Zoom Meeting information. I will also post this to the Canvas homepages for the classes.
If you are having any issues logging into Canvas or how it works I have included a video for you to review.
This year the course also can earn dual credit through Harrisburg University. It is two courses and up to 8 credits at $100 per credit. The courses are titled: CISC 120 – Fundamentals of Computing and CISC 160 – Data Structures
I have enclosed the links to the dual credit program information below.
