Mr. Larry Gordon « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Welcome to Computer Science!!!

We are off to a great start this year, and I am happy with the students' progress in their classes up to this point.


***************************************************************COMPUTER FUNDAMENTALS***************************************************************
  • We have completed the Digital Literacy Unit, and we have now moved on to the unit on the Internet and all of the different components that make up the Internet.
  • The students were given a book this week to take home and keep at home for this class, so they have "checked out" a specific number of book, and they are responsible for returning the book at the end of the year.

************************************************************FOUNDATIONS OF PROGRAMMING**************************************************************

  • We have completed the unit on the History of Programming and Programming Careers, and we are now working on Databases. We are using Microsoft Access as our Database Software, and the students are learning about Tables, Relationships, Forms, Queries, and Reports.

***************************************************************PROGRAMMING ESSENTIALS***************************************************************

  • We are working on Visual Basic right now, which means the students are creating user interfaces and computer programs for the "business world". Although we are just getting started on this, they seem to be grasping the concepts well at this point. 
  • VISUAL BASIC EXPRESS 2013 is the software we are using and it is a free download for anyone. I have put this on some of the kids' USB drives so they could install it at home, because it is important that they have extra time outside of class to work on their programs. If your child has not installed this at home, it is important that they do so if at all possible. I do not want them to fall behind in their work.

******************************************************************PROGRESS REPORTS******************************************************************


I am sending out Progress Reports each Friday now, and you should be getting them via email. If you do not receive your child's progress report, it is likely that your email address is not set up in the Skyward system. Please let me know if you are not receiving them, and we will work on getting your email put into the system right away.


As always, if you have any questions or concerns, PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me!
