It's been a long time since I've done Comp Sci, so this'll be an interesting experience. It may be a matter of learning things shortly before the students do.

Sort of sounds like my second year of tutoring this one guy in math back in high school on a much bigger scale. He was doing geometry and proofs and stuff while I was in pre-calculus and I often had to reteach myself the stuff he was doing (especially proofs) right before helping him with his homework. Or in some cases sitting right next to him while he stared at me and then I helped him with his homework.

I had no idea you knew much computer science. What specifically will you teach in this semester?

Yeah, I used to be a comp sci major before I switched to math. I definitely know enough to teach a 1-semester intro course. My plan right now is to have four units - one on the precision of language and algorithms, one on web design with html and css, one on computer logic and some excel programming, and the final unit as an intro to programming with probably Python though maybe Javascript.

Cool!

As a side note, I've really been meaning to take more Computer Science courses, though my current schedule doesn't really allow for it. I took an introductory one that used python, and had a lot of fun with it. Even with that little amount of programming, I still get some utility from it. Like, I was obsessively checking a website for a new review of an episode of a TV show that had recently aired, and I used it to check for me. Also, when I first decided I wanted to try out some of David Bowie's music, I found a few topics online where people listed their favorite songs, pasted a bunch of the lists into a text file, and then used python to count how many times each song appeared, giving me a list of "essential" Bowie songs to sample on YouTube.
