Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Acquaint students with the basics of structured programming, the basics of C + +. After completing the course, students will be able to: Work with integrated development environment for C++. Define a describe basic programming constructions. Develop and debug a simple program C++. Use data structures such as array, list, etc. Write a recursive function. Use sorting and searching algorithms in their programs.

Teaching methods



This subject is the introductory programming course. Students are expected to have the basic C++ knowledge and high school math knowledge. Discussed algorithms and data structures will be demonstrated in C++. A large emphasis is placed on practical implementation discussed algorithms and data structures. Students are encouraged analysis and synthesis solutions to the problems of smaller units.
