This course, using both lecture and laboratory practice, introduces students to basic computer concepts in hardware, software, networking, computer security, programming, database, e-commerce, decision support systems, and other emerging technologies such as blogs, wiki, RSS, podcasting, and Google applications. Additional lectures examine social, legal, ethical issues including privacy, intellectual property, health concerns, green computing, and accessibility. Students learn techniques to search, evaluate, validate, and cite information found online. Widely used applications including word processing, spreadsheets, databases, presentation, and web development software are studied.
CSci13 - Introduction to Computing
- Teacher: Michael Anthony Jay Regis
This course is intended to prepare the freshman students to have a strong foundation in mathematics required in taking calculus and differential equations. It covers special topics in algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and solid mensuration courses to be taught using functional approach. Topics will include among others, polynomials, factoring, and quadratic equations; logarithmic, exponential, inverse trigonometric, and hyperbolic functions; areas and volumes; vector and planes, lines and surface in spaces; polynomials approximations sequences and infinite series.
