Description

Principles 4 - Weekly Course for Ages 13 - 18

Data Structures and Models

Prerequisites: Principles 3

In the real world, many of the problems that we are trying to solve arise and exist within the physical realm. Using computer science and code to solve some of these problems requires the programmer to capture what is happening in the physical world with data that the computer can understand, process and manipulate.

Principles 4 is Code Campers’ deeper journey into data types and structures before they move on to Object-Oriented Programming in Principles 5. In Principles 4, students will apply and extend their concepts learnt about Python lists and dictionaries to solve a variety of problems. Through the manipulation of such data using code, they will learn to appreciate how each of the different data types is used by programmers to model different features of real-world problems, and be exposed to new ideas in programming including machine learning and physical simulations. This will require them to synthesise and rely on all the coding tools, decomposition and abstraction skills in the preceding courses in order to model the real-world.

After this course, students will have strengthened their understanding of the two key data structures in programming - lists and dictionaries - and enhanced their confidence in using them to build more complex and powerful computer programs.

Course Schedule

This is an 8-lesson course. Lessons will be conducted every Saturday, 28 Mar - 23 May 2020, 2pm - 4pm, at our Marine Parade Campus (#03-04 Parkway Centre).
