Computer Applications Course Syllabus
Course Description and Course Objectives
Computer Applications is a course designed to teach students how to use the computer as a business and personal tool through the use of applications software. Appropriate software for database management, word processing, graphics, and spreadsheets will be used. Students will also perform activities using integrated software programs. Students will learn to use the Internet, and they will be given assignments in which searching the Internet will be required. (An on-line agreement must be signed by a parent or guardian.)
Students are to be in their seats and working on the warm-up exercise when the tardy bell sounds. Assigned work should be turned in daily at the end of class. Students should take proper care of the equipment. Any deliberate misuse of the equipment will result in disciplinary action. Students should obey classroom and school rules at all times.
