Course description

Recommended prerequisite: HTML: Introduction This subject introduces the student to computer programming using the JavaScript programming language. While JavaScript is the language of instruction, the course covers the essential concepts and constructs which are part of most modern programming languages, including sequence, selection, repetition, variables, arrays, and objects. Employing a lecture-lab format, the course leads the student from writing the simplest of programs to creating programs that interact with the elements in a web page. Using only a simple text processor and a browser, the student will write and run programs that utilize variables, calculations, arrays, if statements, loops, objects, and events. In addition to writing programs, the student will also be instructed in the elements of good programming style and their importance.
