Independent Study:  Advanced Topics in Computer Science
One year, 1 credit.

This advanced independent study course is for students who have successfully completed Advanced Placement Computer Science AB (554) and are interested in pursuing more advanced topics.  While this project-based course will be tailored to each studentís interests, all students will be expected to create significant programming artifacts.  It is further expected that, as practicable, these will be of benefit to the Sewickley Academy community, to a community service project, or to a university-level research project.  The course may address a variety of theoretical or technological issues related to computer science, such as game theory, user interface software and technology, numerical methods, inferential techniques, compression and cryptology, or various other areas. Course content and evaluation criteria will be determined by each student and the instructor during the first week of classes.  As an Independent Study course, students will be expected to conduct considerable self-directed work, though each student will meet at least one hour per week with the instructor.
