The major emphasis in this course is on extending the student's proficiency in programming methodology and understanding of algorithms and data structures. The implementation of this extension will be accomplished using an appropriate programming language. The highlevel structured nature of the programming language will be utilized to develop solutions to problems by applying topdown design and modular programming methods. The topics and algorithms learned provide an excellent background for taking AP Computer Science (3011). The programming language used in this course is C++. Criteria for Selection  1. A ‘C' (70%) or better in Computer Science A (3523).
