What is CSP?

The AP Computer Science Principles course and curriculum framework developed by the U.S. College Board is organized around five principles called the five Big Ideas and six Computational Thinking Practices. These big ideas and computational thinking practices comprise what CS experts believe is the most important information for an educated citizen to know and understand about CS. The Mobile CSP curriculum is one of several curricula endorsed by the College Board and approved to use when teaching the AP CSP course.
