COURSE DESCRIPTION: An introduction to computer programming. Its primary objective is to teach problem solving using the C++ programming language. Emphasis will be placed on structured procedural programming with an introduction to object-oriented programming. Designed primarily for computer science and related transfer majors.

STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Design solutions for introductory level problems using appropriate design methodology incorporating elementary programming constructs.
  • Create algorithms, code, document, debug, and test introductory level C++ programs.
  • Read, analyze and explain introductory level C++ programs.

TEXTBOOK:     Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects by Tony Gaddis. 7th EDITION ( • ISBN-13: 9780132576253)

LECTURE NOTES: Will be provided online on Catalyst

CLASS NOTES: Programming homework assignments, many of the class exercises and answers and announcements will be posted in Catalyst (https://catalyst.deanza.edu ) on a week-by-week basis.

COMPUTER LAB:    You may use our computer lab or your own (or another) computer and compiler. If you don't use our computer lab, you need to have a C++ compiler in order to do homework assignments. If you're enrolled in this class, you will automatically have an account in our classroom and AT203 Open Computer Lab (if you're adding, add online in Admissions office, wait about 20 min. before using the open lab).  Bring a flash drive to the Computer Lab to back up your programs or remember to email to yourself.

COURSE OUTLINE (subject to change): Meet in person on Mondays and Wednesdays, 1:30-3:20 PM. The rest will be presented in Catalyst. The instructor will be online Fridays, 1:30-2:50 PM.

                                                              100%

MAKE-UP TESTS:    NO MAKE-UP TESTS WILL BE GIVEN! Please notify the instructor ASAP if you know ahead of time you will be missing a test.

EXTRA CREDIT: Maximum of 5 extra credit projects may be counted! If the project is other than given with the lab assignments, it must be approved by the instructor before they are attempted or it may not be accepted. This will be discussed later in the semester. The extra credit projects are due at the final exam, and must include the source file(s) and output. (Note: Extra credit will only be counted if the student is receiving less than an A+.)

PROGRAMMING HOMEWORK GRADING: Each will be graded as follows:

26 points:     Does the program correctly & completely solve the problem?

6 points:     Is the listing commented & indented? Will I understand what the program is doing? Is the program efficient?

10 points: Is the program design included and complete?

8 points:     ON TIME! (1 point deducted starting day after due date + every other day late--CAN'T TURN IN 3 WEEKS after due date!)

50 points possible (for each programming assignment)

NOTE: NOTHING WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER Fri., Mar. 28, 11:59 PM!
