Summer 2020 - CMPT 127 D300
Computing Laboratory (3)
Class Number: 3659
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 software development process (design-implementation-testing), 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 course and attendance in the lab sessions is ***mandatory***.
**This semester, this course is offered online via the Internet. Therefore, students will need access to a computer, the Internet and a browser application. Other computer-related requirements will be discussed during the semester.
- 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 and classes
- Practice writing programs to specification
- Empirical performance measurement and comparison with algorithm analysis
Students will complete several individual assignments (lab tasks). All assignments are automatically graded by an online server. There will also be weekly exercises as well as in-lab 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).
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 SUMMER 2020Please note that all teaching at SFU in summer term 2020 will be conducted through remote methods. Enrollment in this course 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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-782-3112) as soon as possible to ensure that they are eligible and that approved accommodations and services are implemented in a timely fashion.
