**CS 105 Computer Science: Principles**

3 cr. hrs.; 2 lecture hours; 2 lab hours per week.

This course introduces students to the central ideas of computing and Computer Science, instills ideas and practices of computational thinking, and has students engage in activities that show how computing and Computer Science change the world. Students will learn that computing is both a creative and computational activity. Topics covered include abstraction, choosing computing tools to solve problems or express creativity, exploring patterns in “big data” in computer, developing algorithms to solve a problem and writing a program to implement an algorithm. This course is not programming-language specific. This course is an introductory course for both CS and non-CS-majors.
