This course will teach the design and implementation of imperative programs using the C++ programming language. It assumes no previous knowledge of programming. The main aims of this course are summarized in the following:
Upon satisfactory completion of this course, students will be able to write meaningful C++ programs that includes major control structures (such as loop, selection), programming patterns (such as array processing), data types, and classes. Towards that goal we will have to learn and master a reasonable subset of C++ language, explore many working examples and write many C++ programs.
This course is of 12 chapters divided into 15 weeks. The student should be aware of the importance of revising the material synchronously with the lectures. Prerequisites of this course include Logic Design, and a programming language like C, C++, or JAVA. The assessment is done by 3 quizzes (weeks 4, 7 and 11), a term paper and a final exam.
