128 Computing Literacy and Coding for Problem Solving
This course introduces coding for everyday problem solving. Coding is introduced through multimedia computing including manipulation of images, sound and video. Intuitive programming languages, constructs and environment are used to introduce basic coding structures. The prevalence of computing in modern society is discussed. Students from all disciplines can develop their powers of coding for problem solving. B.Sc. Advanced Major and Honours students may only count this course as an approved or open elective. Three credits.
135 Computer Application Technology
This course enables students to use a variety of software tools to assist in their postsecondary studies and future careers. The course covers a broad range of information and communication tools essential for analyzing and presenting data, communicating information, organizing and writing papers, and preparing talks, slide presentations and posters. Webpage management is introduced. Topics covered support students in education, business, humanities and the health/social/physical sciences. B.Sc.
