CSH: Computer Science Honors Recruiting Office!

Welcome to Computing at Baldwin Senior High School! My name is Mr. Garcia. I teach in the Math Department at good old BSHS. I'm here today to encourage you to take Computer Science Honors aka CSH.

CSH is a new course I've been teaching since 1975 replacing Computer Math and Advanced Computer Math. How is that possible, you ask? Well, CSH is an introduction to programming and I've been teaching people how to program ever since I learned how. What's new about this course is that we just started using Python as our programming language of choice. We also just started using a new textbook about Discerete Mathematics using Python,, pictured above. BTW, all your work is stored online and we use an eText, so you don't even have to bring anything to class!

Also, the first thing you'll notice is that I don't do Windows, and neither does my maid! We are currently using the 64bit Ubuntu 11.04 Linux Desktop which is a rock solid, programmer friendly system designed with network security, multitasking, multiprocessing and multiuser support built-in from the ground up. Please see the video above and sign-up sheet below:
