|Certificates: Informatics and Modeling|
This is the first course in a two-course sequence (COMP211-212) that is the gateway to the computer science major. It provides an introduction to the fundamental ideas of programming and computer science, organized around the study of information-processing problems from various domains. Sample problems include modeling predator-prey dynamics, image manipulation, and authorship identification, though the actual problems studied will vary. The course will focus on one particular programming language as well as associated computing and mathematical concepts and formalisms.
Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning
This course will develop fundamental ideas of computing, computational reasoning, and programming.

This course is intended for Computer Science majors and others who want an in-depth understanding of programming and expect to continue programming after this course. While there are no prerequisites beyond some familiarity with using computers, it is a significantly more challenging course than COMP 112. Because of the non-programming topics that will be addressed, permission to place out of this course using AP Computer Science credit will be decided on a case-by-case basis by the instructor.
