Computer Programming is not a Math Credit

Confused about the difference between Computer Programming and Computer Science? How is Computer Science going to be taught as a math credit? This workshop aims to answer these questions with instructional activities and first hand experience at problem solving with strategies from Computing Science. No experience is necessary and I promise not to make you write any code :).

Computer Programming is not a math credit but Computer Science is.

I am the Mathematics department head at Johnston Heights Secondary in Surrey and have been teaching AP Computing Science, ICTP11, and ICTP12 for over 10 years. I'm a member of the provincial curriculum writing team for Computer Programming (ADST) and Computer Science (Mathematics). I'm a hopeless nerd and I like to code.
