Computer Science Principles

AP Computer Science Principles (AP CSP) provides students the opportunity to use programming, computational thinking, and data analytics to create digital artifacts and documents representing design and analysis in areas including the Internet, algorithms, and the impact that these have on science, business, and society. The AP Computer Science Principles course teaches students to use computational tools and techniques including abstraction, modeling, and simulation to collaborate in solving real-world problems and build relevant solutions that connect computation to their lives.

Together, these aspects of the course make up a rigorous and rich curriculum that aims to broaden participation in computer science. The two-page Course Overview provides a succinct description of the course and assessments.

The AP Computer Science Principles Course and Exam Description focuses on the innovative aspects of computing as well as the computational thinking practices that help students see how computing is relevant to many areas of their everyday lives.
