Intended learning outcomes

The course will be an introduction to programming in an imperative programming language. The course will give a solid ground in programming for coming courses in the program.

To obtain a pass, the student shall know how to write structured programs, where these things are specially important:

  • create easy algorithms for given problems and translate them to program code.
  • use an IDE to write, execute and debug programs.
  • choose and use simple and more complex data types and variables.
  • explain the difference between parameters passed by value and reference parameters. Know how different data types are stored in memory.
  • write functions for well defined problems.
  • break up a problem in sub problems, implement and test, step by step, choosing suitable test data.
  • divide a program in more source files to support abstraction, reuse and maintenance.
  • write programs with help of : top down design, pseudo-code and flowchart
  • use external files for data storage
  • analysis of more complex programming tasks. Structuring the solution in more levels including: problem analysis, overall design, well formed graphical user interface, divide the problem in sub problems, modules and functions and implementation.
