CSI301

NCEA Level 3 Computer Science Information 301

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: G. Hall

CSI301 - Computer Science and Information 301

This academic course builds on the CSI201 course; 

It continues to extend both Programming and Database skills and the understanding of concepts in Computer Science.

This year the course:

  • Extends the programming language Python by exploring Graphic User Interfaces (GUI) and Classes which allow the use of Objects to be utilized in the code.
  • Builds on how database tables in a SQL database can be linked by a Many to Many relationship to output in a website and looks at how data in a database can be added, updated and removed via forms in the website all using PHP code, HTML and CSS.
  • Further exploration of concepts in Computer Science.

Students can also take the option DIT301 as this course does compliment DIT.

OPTIONAL

The following two Assessment Standards can be taken as an option by students who are not sitting 13DIT

  • 3.4_(91903)_Web
  • 3.8_(91907)_Develop included in both courses.
