Grade 12 course selection :O


Recommended Posts

Omgawd...

Someone help me with this <No cursing.>, I'm thinking of taking as follows...

Biology 12

History 12

English 12

Computer Programming 11

ICT - Digital Media Development 11

Computer Programming 12 - Game Design

and one more provincial exam course... I live in BC Canada so this is like a course similar to socials, science, or math... I hate math so thats a big no-no, I was thinking about taking an online course called Comparative Civilization 12...

I heard that programming courses are really boring, but I really think I would enjoy them; however, would being in a grade 11 class kinda suck?

Is programming something quite difficult to learn... C++ etc..

Not especially...I took some Java and C++ in high school...they seemed moderately difficult back then, but that was only because I had not gotten used to all the concepts and stuff. As a junior in college (computer information science major) I don't think it's as difficult now.

Besides, if you have a cool teacher like I did in high school, you can do all sorts of fun stuff with computers. :) As for your last class, pick something that you enjoy that you think you might major in in college. Hope this helps!

math is just not my thing, I was also looking at a course called Animation 12 the description for this goes as follows...

"Students will learn the ability to identify, describe, analyze, interpret and make judgments about the visual elements and principles of art and design as used in animation. In animation 12, students may choose to explore the curriculum in either 2D(hand drawn) or 3D animation. The course will be delivered in a way that simulated what is done in the real workforce at an animation studio and expose students to the skills that will prepare them for post secondary"

Description for Comp. programming 12

"Computer programming through game design. This advanced course is designed to develop your programming skills through the exciting process of video game design. We are fortunate that Vancouver offers exciting career opportunities in this area and this course can give you the start you need for post-secondary education in this area. Modern game design involves both a high level of programming and animation skill, thus some background in both these areas is beneficial for students wanting to attempt any 3D game programming. The course will consist primarily of a large scale project culminating in a working video game." - Requires Computer Programming 11, Digital Media Development 11, and Math 11 recommended.

Now, after reading that I think Programming would be a better career choice for my area, and something I sort of know about(ok only a little) :D

But Animation seems like it would be kind of cool, but un-beneficial to my life...

I'm going to read up on the requirements for both these courses in a univ. or college or institute

ARGH! Computer programming in the univ. I want to go to requires Math 12 C+ or Math 12 Applications B

I took a class in high school like the computer programming class you're talking about...the final project was to create some sort of game...it took me about 3000 lines of code...after a year in college I rewrote it just for the heck of it...it's now about 500 lines of code...you can actually play it here

Na, I'm a junior in college...taking computer information science as a major...which basically means it's computer science, except they took out all the math and replaced it with business :) . It's not too tough once you figure out concepts, but there's still stuff that's lightyears away from what I can do.

sorry for the questions :D

but, howlong do you plan to spend in college? and what do you plan to do after? :D

No problem. :) I plan to graduate on time (may '08 ) with a bachelor's in CIS...I know I'll have a job when I graduate...I could go pretty much anywhere...Google, Cerner, Associated Electric Cooperative Inc, Walmart ISD...any sort of big company with a need for computer people. I've been thinking about staying in college for a little longer to pick up my MBA, but we'll see...

last question, I know it seems odd, but I like to compare colleges prices, howmuch you pay a semester/year?

Well, I hope I'm heading the right path in life, thanks for all the help lion

then again, maybe that animation course is the way to go, I would rather design some like "Kozo" :D than create the code that makes the program that makes Kozo... Creating characters and such for a video game does seem like it would suit me better than learning the complicated steps behind programming... ugh, I just don't know.

But then again, what college in BC Canada offers a course on creating 3D animations... pasjfn9ubn2t09nhb31q0tb

"stress?" How old are you?* You don't know "stress"...

Just wait until you get married... :D

*(Don't answer that)

What's wrong with marriage?

It's everything that comes with marriage that causes stress...

But, at least, marriage also comes with "stress relief" ;)

Stress relief, hmm?

Are you referring to the 40 hours a week you get to spend away from your wife, or the 2 minutes you spend with your wife?
