You should see links to both of these at the very, very top of this page.
An introduction to computer science providing a broad survey of the
discipline while emphasizing the computer's role as a tool for
describing, organizing and manipulating information. Topics to
include machine architecture, software, data organization, and the
potential and limitation of machines. Serves as a terminal course for
students who want a one-course introduction to the field, as well as a
preliminary course to upper-level computer science offerings. Note:
this is NOT a programming class and it may be taken concurrently with
COMP 125 or 170.
This course will take advantage of the Internet and the departmental
network in many ways.
The components of an overall course ``percentage'' will be calculated
based on the following assigned work:
Computing at Loyola
Students may develop their assignments for this course on a computer
in a lab run by the Computer Science Department, in a lab run by
Information Services at Loyola, or on a computer outside of Loyola, so
long as it can be connected to the Internet.
