Introduction to Computing Science & Programming I

An elementary introduction to computing science and programming as a problem-solving tool. Fundamental concepts and terminology of computing science will be introduced. Programming skill will be obtained by using a high-level language. Topics will include: abstraction, data types and control structures, fundamental algorithms and pseudocode, computability and complexity, and computer architecture.

Course Credits: 3
Prerequisite(s): None. (3-1-3 or 3-1-3)
2021-2022 CMPT 166

Introduction to Computing Science and Programming II

A rigorous introduction to computing science and computer programming. Students will learn in- depth programming concepts by seeing how object oriented (OO) concepts are employed in the design and writing of code in a variety of notations. The emphasis is on the theory of OO programming and design of solutions, as well as implementation using an OO language such as Java or C++.

Course Credits: 3
Prerequisite(s): CMPT 140 with a minimum grade of C+. (0-0; 3-3)

Christian Perspectives in the Sciences: Chemistry

This is a liberal arts-oriented capstone course concerning the integration of Christianity with chemistry and other disciplines taught within the Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences. Christian beliefs found in Scripture are applied to an understanding and evaluation of modern science and technology. The course integrates elements of theology, history and philosophy of science, and specific topics where Christian faith and science intersect. This course consists of three parts: general topics in science, further exploration of topics for students within chemistry, and student-led seminars in interdisciplinary groups.

Course Credits: 3
Prerequisite(s): Completion of at least 60 sem. hrs. of study by end of preceding semester and at least 12 sem. hrs. of Chemistry.
2021-2022 PHYS 111

Fundamentals of Physics I

Students investigate physical reality employing basic principles of Newtonian mechanics which allow the description and explanation of motion: three-dimensional kinematics, dynamics of particles and rigid bodies including work, energy, momentum, rotational motion, simple harmonic motion, and fluids.

Course Credits: 3
Prerequisite(s): Physics 12
Co-requisite(s): MATH 123
