Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Fundamental computer concepts.

Programming in a modern programming language (Python). Data structures. Use of simple graphical routines (for grade A). Problem-solving through division into sub-problems. Program structuring. Several smaller programming assignments as well as one larger, individual programming assignment with strong emphasis on structuring and specification of included modules.

Intended learning outcomes

Having passed the course, the student should be able to:

  • design programs without code repetitions
  • divide a larger problem in manageable parts
  • divide a program
  • apply control structures
  • design and present user friendly output
  • create flexible applications
  • choose appropriate names of identifiers
  • design interactive programs
  • use and design composite data types (classes)
  • transfer data between file and program,
  • review others' programs

in order to be able to

  • use programming to solve problems,
  • apply the problem solving methodology also within other fields than programming,
  • discuss software development with experts
  • assess commercial programs
  • independently be able to solve problems by designing programs of up to 500 lines in a modern programming language.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Examination

  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 1,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • LAB2 - Laboratory Work, 1,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • LAB3 - Laboratory Work, 3,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

LAB1 and LAB2 have to be passed in order for the student to present any part of LAB3.
