Enroll in Computer Programming I with Dolphin STEM Academy
This one-semester course is intended as a practical, hands-on guide to help you understand the
concepts and techniques associated with computer programming. This course has four Units
with 15 lessons and four Unit Activities. Each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities.
This course describes the skills and training required for careers in computer programming and
the work ethics required in a computing environment. This course describes number systems,
data types, and functions used in computation. In addition, this course describes types of
programming paradigms and program structures. Finally, this course explains how to create
You will submit the Unit Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work in the
Lesson Activities by comparing them with given sample responses. The Unit Activities
(submitted to the teacher) and the Lesson Activities (self-checked) are the major components of
this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that
feature along with the lesson; the pre- and post-test questions that come at the beginning and
end of the unit respectively, and an end-of-semester test. All of these tests are a combination of
simple multiple-choice questions and technology enhanced (TE) questions.
This course will help you meet the following goals:
Identify the career options in computer programming.
