Curriculum choice for AP Computer Science A

Computer Science Educators Asked on August 21, 2021

We are currently researching what curriculum to use/adapt for the 2019-2020 school year. It will be our first year offering AP CSA. The students taking the class will have had 3-7 years of computers science classes and plan to go into a computer science program.

Anyone have strong feelings on what AP CSA curriculum to use?

One Answer

With the amount of preparation you're describing, the only thing your students will likely need is a course that teaches them Java syntax and object oriented programming, as the AP CSA exam assumes knowledge of Java:

SHOW ALL YOUR WORK. REMEMBER THAT PROGRAM SEGMENTS ARE TO BE WRITTEN IN JAVA.

(from https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/pdf/ap-2020exam-sample-questions-computer-science.pdf)

Code.org has a nice list of Java curricula that specifically target the AP CSA outcomes, but really any "Fundamentals of Java" course or online tutorial would likely be just fine.
