Computer Science

is all about solving problems…

…and using the computer to solve some very difficult problems.

who uses the internet
Who Uses the Internet?

Who Uses E-mail and IM?

some examples
Some Examples:

Purchasing music, movies, etc…

Managing money (online banking)

Ordering food

Getting directions

Playing games

And SO many others…

here s the bad news
Here’s the BAD news…

Crime has also gone online …

slide36

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
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

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!
