Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Fundamentals for designing and implementing modular programs using a modern object-oriented programming language with a focus on understanding the performance implications of design choices on non-traditional computing platforms. Lecture topics include: classes; objects; debugging, testing & verification; design analysis & abstraction; error handling; fundamental data structures such as lists, trees, and graphs; and big-0 complexity analysis.

COURSE DETAILS:

This course will teach students fundamentals for designing and implementing modular programs using a modern object-oriented programming language (C++). We will focus on understanding the performance implications of design choices on general-purpose computing platforms. Lecture topics include but not limited to: classes; objects; debugging, testing & verification; design analysis & abstraction; error handling; fundamental data structures such as lists, stacks, and queues; big-O complexity analysis;and simple discrete mathematics.
 
There will be a significant lab component in this course to provide students hands-on programming experience under the Linux environment. 

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html

TEACHING AT SFU IN FALL 2020

Teaching at SFU in fall 2020 will be conducted primarily through remote methods. There will be in-person course components in a few exceptional cases where this is fundamental to the educational goals of the course. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112).
