NEW ON PATREON: Computer Science Honors (CSH Intro CS with Python)

NEW ON PATREON:

Computer Science Honors

(CSH Intro CS with Python)


Most of these 60+ videos were recorded after class as short summaries while I taught Computer Science Honors (CSH) at my High School. The class met for 40 minutes each day, 5 days a week starting right after Labor Day every September. Each class began with a review of homework questions. These homework sessions were not recorded. A few review sessions for tests were recorded, however. These 60 screencasts cover the most important programming concepts in python and form a great intro CS course prerequisite to AP Computer Science (CSA). If you are using these screencasts to teach yourself CompSci or you are using these videos to help you teach your own course, you will do well to review all 60 videos!

Each video is labeled based on a section in our textbook like CSH202. This sample label stands for Chapter 2 Section 2 end of section exercises. We usually used odd numbered questions for class work and even numbered questions for homework. We also had a test bank that included pretest review sheets and Labs from our textbook author/publisher extraordinaire Gary Litvin. Please see his website for great Computer Science and Calculus teaching materials, https://skylit.com

I hope you find these videos helpful in your educational journey whether you are an aspiring Mathematician, Physicist, Computer Scientist, Engineer, Teacher or Professor! Many of my students are majoring in one or more of these areas and do very well indeed with these topics in their careers. We also have a lot of fun in our PC Lab/Classroom complete with 25 quadcore 64 bit Ubuntu Linux Boxes and a SmartBoard. We love this room, especially for our weekly Filks when we shut off all the lights and pretend we're at the movie theater! All that's missing is the popcorn... don't tell the custodian if you find a kernel or two lying about after class!

You can see a picture of our classroom above circa June 2018. Soon after, my Linux Boxes were replaced with Wimpdoze and I retired!

PS: Chapter 1 is free. Then every other chapter will be supported by patron donations. Thank you!

PPS: You will find over 120 screencasts after CSH covering AP CSA Java!

PPPS: Then you will find over 50 more screencasts covering topics from College preCalculus to Multivariate Calculus!

OK, that's all the updates for now!

Good luck and be well,

MrG
