Society, Law and Ethics - 1
4.1 Unit 1: Programming and Computational Thinking (PCT-1) (80 Theory + 70 Practical)
a) Familiarization with the basics of Python programming: a simple “hello world" program, process of writing a program, running it, and print statements; simple data-types: integer, float, string Introduce the notion of a variable, and methods to manipulate it (concept of L-value and R- value even if not taught explicitly)
b) Knowledge of data types and operators: accepting input from the console, assignment statement, expressions, operators and their precedence.
c) Conditional statements: if, if-else, if-elif-else; simple programs: e.g.: absolute value, sort 3 numbers, and divisibility.
d) Notion of iterative computation and control flow: for, while, flowcharts, decision trees and pseudo code; write a lot of programs: interest calculation, primarily testing, and factorials.
e) Idea of debugging: errors and exceptions; debugging: pdb, break points.
f) Lists, tuples and dictionary: finding the maximum, minimum, mean; linear search on list/tuple of numbers, and counting the frequency of elements in a list using a dictionary. Introduce the notion of accessing elements in a collection using numbers and names.
g) Sorting algorithm: bubble and insertion sort; count the number of operations while sorting.
h) Strings: compare, concat, substring; notion of states and transitions using state transition diagram
4.2. Unit 2: Computer Systems and Organisation (CSO) (20 Theory + 6 Practical)
a) Basic computer organisation: description of a computer system and mobile system, CPU, memory, hard disk, I/O, battery, power.
b) Types of software: application, OS, utility, libraries.
c) Language of Bits: bit, byte, MB, GB, TB, and PB.
d) Boolean logic: OR, AND, NAND, NOR, XOR, NOT, truth tables, De Morgan’s laws
e) Information representation: numbers in base 2, 8, 16, unsigned integers, binary addition
f) Strings: ASCII, UTF8, UTF32, ISCII (Indian script code)
g) Execution of a program: basic flow of compilation – program à binary à execution
h) Interpreters (process one line at a time), difference between a compiler and an interpreter
i) Running a program: Notion of an operating system, how an operating system runs a program, idea of loading, operating system as a resource manager.
j) Concept of cloud computers, cloud storage (public/private), and brief introduction to parallel computing.
4.3. Unit 3: Data Management (DM-1) (30 Theory+ 24 Practical)
a) Relational databases: idea of a database and the need for it, relations, keys, primary key, foreign key; use SQL commands to create a table, keys, foreign keys; insert/delete an entry, delete a table.
b) SQL commands: select, project, and join; indexes, and a lot of in-class practice.
c) Basics of NoSQL databases - Mongo DB.
4.4. Unit 4: Society, Law and Ethics (SLE-1) - Cyber safety (10 Theory)
a) Cyber safety: safely browsing the web, identity protection, confidentiality, social networks, cyber trolls and bullying
b) Appropriate usage of social networks: spread of rumours, and common social networking sites (Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook) and specific usage rules.
c) Safely accessing web sites: adware, malware, viruses, Trojans
d) Safely communicating data: secure connections, eavesdropping, phishing and identity verification.
Lab Test (12 marks)
Python program (60% logic + 20% documentation + 20% code quality)
SQL program (at least 4 queries)
Report File + viva (10 marks)
Report file: Minimum 20 Python programs and 8 SQL commands
Viva voce (based on the report file)
Project (that uses most of the concepts that have been learnt) (See CS-XII for the rules regarding the projects).
5.1. Programming in Python: At least the following Python concepts should be covered in the lab sessions: expressions, conditionals, loops, list, dictionary, and strings. The following are some representative lab assignments.
a) Find the largest and smallest numbers in a list.
b) Find the third largest number in a list.
c) Test for primarily.
d) Find whether a string is a palindrome or not.
e) Given two integers x and n, compute xn.
f) Compute the greatest common divisor and the least common multiple of two integers.
g) Test if a number is equal to the sum of the cubes of its digits. Find the smallest and largest such numbers.
5.2. Data Management: SQL Commands At least the following SQL commands should be covered during the labs: create, insert, delete, select, and join. The following are some representative assignments.
a) Create a student table with the student id, name, and marks as attributes where the student id is the primary key.
b) Insert the details of a new student in the above table.
c) Delete the details of a particular student in the above table.
d) Use the select command to get the details of the students with marks more than 80.
