Introduction to the principles and technical aspects of computing, as well
as the many areas of social and ethical concern raised by the rapid
evolution of computer technology. Topics include the Internet and
worldwide information exchange, the power and limitations of the computer
as a problem solver, and the issues of privacy, security, and computer
crime. Parts of the course are devoted to an exploration of specific
computer applications and the Internet.

be distributed through the home page.

firsthand through regular participation. Please inform me beforehand if
you will be absent. Remember that you are responsible for making up missed
Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Refer to the Student Handbook.
