This course focuses on the fundamentals of computer algorithms, emphasizing methods useful in practice. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: explain and identify the importance of algorithms in modern computing systems and their place as a technology in the computing industry; indentify algorithms as a pseudo-code to solve some common problems; describe asymptotic notations for bounding algorithm running times from above and below; explain methods for solving recurrences useful in describing running times of recursive algorithms; explain the use of Master Theorem in describing running times of recursive algorithms; describe the divide-and-conquer recursive technique for solving a class of problems; describe sorting algorithms and their runtime complexity analysis; describe the dynamic programming technique for solving a class of problems; describe greedy algorithms and their applications; describe concepts in graph theory, graph-based algorithms, and their analysis; describe tree-based algorithms and their analysis; explain the classification of difficult computer science problems as belonging to P, NP, and NP-hard classes.

American Government is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the single-semester American government course. This title includes innovative features designed to enhance student learning, including Insider Perspective features and a Get Connected Module that shows students how they can get engaged in the political process. The book provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of American government and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. American Government includes updated information on the 2016 presidential election.Senior Contributing AuthorsGlen Krutz (Content Lead), University of OklahomaSylvie Waskiewicz, PhD (Lead Editor)
In this activity, kids will work on two fundamental early math skills – sorting/classifying, and graphing. There will also be some great fine motor skill practice! Includes place-based discussion questions, activity instructions, extension activities, songs, and student graph worksheets.

This course is a continuation of the first-semester course titled Introduction to Computer Science I. It will introduce the student to a number of more advanced Computer Science topics, laying a strong foundation for future academic study in the discipline. The student will begin with a comparison between Java--the programming language utilized last semester--and C++, another popular, industry-standard programming language. The student will then discuss the fundamental building blocks of Object-Oriented Programming, reviewing what they have learned learned last semester and familiarizing themselves with some more advanced programming concepts. The remaining course units will be devoted to various advanced topics, including the Standard Template Library, Exceptions, Recursion, Searching and Sorting, and Template Classes. By the end of the class, the student will have a solid understanding of Java and C++ programming, as well as a familiarity with the major issues that programmers routinely address in a professional setting. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of Java and C++ and how they are used in Object-Oriented Programming; Demonstrate an understanding of the history and development of Object-Oriented Programming; Explain the importance of the C++ Standard Template Library and how basic components are used; Demonstrate a basic understanding of the importance of run-time analysis in programming; Demonstrate an understanding of important sorting and search routines in programming; Demonstrate an understanding of the generic usage of templates in programming for C++ and Java; Compare and contrast the features of Java and C++.

Introduction to Sociology 2e adheres to the scope and sequence of a typical, one-semester introductory sociology course. It offers comprehensive coverage of core concepts, foundational scholars, and emerging theories, which are supported by a wealth of engaging learning materials. The textbook presents detailed section reviews with rich questions, discussions that help students apply their knowledge, and features that draw learners into the discipline in meaningful ways. The second edition retains the book’s conceptual organization, aligning to most courses, and has been significantly updated to reflect the latest research and provide examples most relevant to today’s students. In order to help instructors transition to the revised version, the 2e changes are described within the preface.

Elementary Science and Integrated Subjects is a statewide Clime Time collaboration among ESD 123, ESD 105, and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Development of the resources is in response to a need for research- based science lessons for elementary teachers that are integrated with English language arts, mathematics and other subjects such as social studies. The template for Elementary integration can serve as an organized, coherent and research-based roadmap for teachers in the development of their own NGSS aligned science lessons. Lessons can also be useful for classrooms that have no adopted curriculum as well as to serve as enhancements for current science curriculum.
