Computer Science is about ????...


Slide36 l.jpg

Computer Science is about problem solving

Lets solve a problem!

In computer science we build Algorithms…

a sequence of steps/instructions to solve a problem


Problem solving l.jpg

Problem Solving

A farmer has to get a sheep, a carrot and a wolf over the river to the grassy field.

BUT he can only take one of them with him at a time …


Slide38 l.jpg

Problem Solving

BUT if left alone,

The wolf will eat the sheep

The sheep will eat the carrot

What is Programming?

  • A computer can only do what it is told to do

  • A program is a set of instructions telling a machine what to do

  • Programming involves learning how to write instructions that do specific tasks

  • COMPUTER SCIENCE IS SO MUCH MORE!
