(Optional for the 2018-19 school year and mandatory for the 2019-20 school year and beyond)
1. Prerequisites: No basic prerequisites are required for this course other than basic math skills. However, it will be helpful if the student has a basic knowledge of computer applications. 
2. Learning outcomes:

  1. Develop basic computational thinking. Learn how to reason with variables, state transitions, conditions, and iterations.
  2. Understand the concept of data types and higher-order data structures such as lists, tuples, and dictionaries.
  3. Assess the concept algorithm and understand its structure, including how the algorithms handle corner cases.
  4. Develop basic knowledge of computer systems — architecture, OS, mobile and cloud computing.
  5. Learn the basics of SQL programming.
  6. Learn all about cybersecurity.

4.1 Unit 1: Programming and Computational Thinking (PCT-1) (80 Theory + 70 Practical)
An introduction to the basics of Python programming: a simple hello world program , L-values ​​and Rvalue, even if not explicitly taught), if, if-else, if-elif-else ; simple programs: for example: decision trees and pseudocode; write many programs: factorials
Debugging idea: lists , tuples and accessing items in a collection using numbers and names. 
Sorting algorithm: Strings in Python : comparison, concat , Basic Computer Organization : Description of the computer system and mobile system, processor, memory, hard disk, I / O, battery, power. 
Software types: bit, byte, MB, GB, TB, and PB
Boolean logic: De Morgan's laws Number representation: base numbers 2, 8, 16, unsigned integers, binary addition
Strings: ASCII, UTF8, UTF32, ISCII (Indian script code )
Program execution: main compilation thread —  interpreters (process one line at a time) , difference between compiler and interpreter , operating system as resource manager
Cloud computing: relationship , keys, primary key, foreign key delete table
SQL Commands: design and combine ; indexes and lots of practice in the classroom. 
NoSQL Database Basics : adware, viruses, trojans
Secure data transfer: secure connections, eavesdropping, phishing and identity verification.
