Curriculum

JavaScript is a versatile and popular programming language that is primarily used for web development.

JavaScript is a client-side scripting language, meaning it runs in a user’s web browser, enabling the creation of responsive web applications. It allows you to perform actions such as data validation, user interactions, and manipulating the Document Object Model (DOM) to dynamically update web page content.

  • Students will learn about the role of JavaScript in Web Development.
  • Writing and Running Your First JavaScript Code.

JavaScript variables and data types are fundamental concepts in the JavaScript programming language. Variables are used to store and manipulate data, and data types define the kind of data that can be stored in variables.

Kids will understand about Variables and different types of variables available in JS. We will also teach kids about the data types and supported types of datatypes in JS.

Understanding JavaScript variables and data types is crucial for working with data and building applications, as they form the foundation for all programming tasks in JavaScript.

Control flow statements in JavaScript are used to determine the order in which code is executed. These statements allow you to make decisions, create loops, and execute code blocks conditionally.

There are mainly Four Control Statements in JS : 

  • Conditional Statements:
  • Looping Statements:
  • Control Statements:
  • Switch Statement:

This lesson is mainly focused on conditional statements in JavaScript.

 

Looping statements in JavaScript allow you to execute a block of code repeatedly. These statements are crucial for performing tasks that involve iteration or processing a sequence of data.

  • The for loop is a common choice when you know in advance how many times you want to repeat a block of code.
  • The while loop repeats a block of code as long as a specified condition is true.
  • The do...while loop is similar to the while loop but guarantees that the block of code is executed at least once before checking the condition.

Functions and scope are essential concepts in JavaScript, playing a crucial role in organizing and structuring your code.

Functions: A function in JavaScript is a block of reusable code that performs a specific task or set of tasks. Functions allow you to encapsulate logic, making your code more modular and maintainable.

Kids will learn about different concepts like Function Declaration, Function Expression, Function Calling.

Scope: Scope in JavaScript defines the visibility and accessibility of variables and functions within your code.

  • Global Scope: Variables declared outside of any function have global scope, which means they can be accessed from anywhere in your code.
  • Local Scope (Function Scope): Variables declared inside a function have local scope, which means they are only accessible within that function.

DOM (Document Object Model) manipulation in JavaScript is the process of interacting with and modifying web page content and structure in real-time. By using JavaScript to manipulate the DOM, you can create dynamic and interactive web applications.

Key concepts and methods for DOM manipulation in JavaScript:

Selecting DOM Elements: To manipulate DOM elements, you first need to select them. There are various methods to select elements in the DOM.

  1. getElementById: This method selects an element by its unique ID attribute.
  2. getElementsByClassName: Selects elements by their class name, returning a collection (HTMLCollection) of elements.
  3. getElementsByTagName: Selects elements by their tag name, returning a collection of elements.
  4. querySelector: Selects the first element that matches a CSS selector and many more.. 

 

Modifying Elements: Once you’ve selected an element, you can modify its content, attributes, and styles. Common methods include:

  1. innerHTML: Allows you to change the HTML content of an element.
  2. textContent: Sets or retrieves the text content of an element.
  3. setAttribute: Sets the value of an attribute.
  4. style: Manipulates CSS styles for an element.
