Computer Science I.B.

This page is specifically for students planning to write the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) Computer Science exam and complete the internal assessment (I.A.) for the I.B. Computer Science course at either the standard level (S.L.) or the higher level (H.L.). Much of the basic Computer Science content can be found in the grade 10-12 Computer Science courses. Use the following links to relevant course content for Computer Science I.B. (grade 12 International Baccalaureate):

Any questions about any of this by students, parents, teachers, etc? Then email Mr. Wachs or comment at the bottom of this page…


Weekly Events:

  • Week 1: I introduced the course and went over the course outline, then students started a look at Searching and Sorting  (see presentationexample, and videos for parts onetwothreefourfive, and six as well as advanced searching and sorting presentation and example), as well as starting to look over shared online study documents for the I.B. exam.
  • Week 2: We continued our look at Searching and sorting (see previous week for links) and students also used time to continue working on their individual I.B. internal assessments and go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 3: A shorter week due to Louis Riel day on Monday, we completed our look at searching and sorting (see previous weeks for links), and started a look at sequential files (see presentation, example, review, and videos). Students also used time to continue working on their individual I.B. internal assessments and go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 4: We had our Monday class cancelled due to school registration for next year. This week we completed at sequential files (see previous weeks for links) and started a look at Stacks and Queues (see presentationvideos, and example). Students also used time to continue working on their individual I.B. internal assessments and go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 5: This week we continued our look at Stacks and Queues (see presentationvideos, and example). Students also used time to continue working on their individual I.B. internal assessments and go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 6: This week was a shorter week (due to an inservice day on Friday) and we used the week to look at binary trees (see presentationreview sheetvideos, and example). Students also used time to continue working on their individual I.B. internal assessments and go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 7: The week before spring break, students worked on the I.B. Computer Science internal assessments and we completed our look at binary trees (see presentationreview sheetvideos, and example). Students also used time to continue working on their individual I.B. internal assessments and go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Spring Break Week
  • Week 8: Back from spring break, this week we looked at a timetable of the time remaining until the I.B. exam, and finalized the details of the I.A. We started our look at System Fundamentals (see presentationworkbook, and videos) and then by then end of the week started our look at Computer Organization (see presentationworkbook, and videos, and Mr. Wachs was away on Friday) 
  • Week 9: This week we continued our look at Computer Organization (see previous weeks for links). Students also used time to go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 10: This week (a shorter week because of Good Friday, and some class disruptions for a school pep rally and MADD presentation), we continued our look at Computer Organization (see previous weeks for links). Students also used time to go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 11: This week (a shorter week due to an inservice on Friday, and class interruptions on Wednesday due to a school wide “Tell Them From Me” survey, and Mr. Wachs was away on Wednesday at an inservice), we completed our look at Computer Organization (see previous weeks for links) and began a look at Networks (see presentation, workbook, and videos). Students also used time to go over shared study documents for the external assessment (the I.B. exam).
  • Week 12: This was our last week before the upcoming I.B. Computer Science exam, and the last week students were required to attend class. We completed networks and looked at both Resource management (see presentation, workbook, and video) and Control (see presentation, workbook, and video) this week.
  • Week 13: Our regular course was completed but students used the week to study for the upcoming I.B. Computer Science exam
  • Week 14: Our regular course was completed but students used the week to study for the upcoming I.B. Computer Science exam
