Computing Laboratory (3)
Class Number: 6691
Delivery Method: In Person
Builds on CMPT 120 to give a hands-on introduction to programming in C and C++, the basics of program design, essential algorithms and data structures. Guided labs teach the standard tools and students exploit these ideas to create software that works. To be taken in parallel with CMPT 125.
This course builds on CMPT 120 to give a hands-on introduction to programming in C and C++, basics of program design, essential algorithms and data structures. Guided labs teach the standard tools and students exploit these ideas to create software that works. To be taken in parallel with CMPT 125. This is a lab-only class and attendance in the lab sessions is mandatory.
- C and C++ programming
- Testing and debugging strategies
- Structured programming using functions
- Compound data types and objects
- Implementation of search and sort algorithms
- Abstract data types, containers and generics
- Practice writing programs to specification
- Empirical performance measurement and comparison with algorithm analysis
Students will complete several individual assignments. All assignments are automatically graded by an online server. There will be two in-lab hands-on programming exams.
Students must attain an overall passing grade on the weighted average of exams in the course in order to obtain a clear pass (C- or better).
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
