To clarify my original query, the course I was referring to was not 
actually in the CS curriculum per se; it is a service course (CS0) for 
our whole student body. It serves as an introduction to computers and 
computing, with the goal of introducing programming and algorithmic and 
logical thinking to some degree. It is not intended for CS majors. We 
expect and hope that the students' work in other areas will be enhanced 
by taking this course. Naturally, we also hope that some will decide to 
be CS majors :-).

I have enjoyed all the posts on this forum.
