Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

A second course in systems-oriented programming and computing science that builds upon the foundation set in CMPT 130 using a systems-oriented language such as C or C++. Topics: a review of the basic elements of programming; introduction to object-oriented programming (OOP); techniques for designing and testing programs; use and implementation of elementary data structures and algorithms; introduction to embedded systems programming. Students with credit for CMPT 125, 126, or 129 may not take this course for further credit. Quantitative.

COURSE DETAILS:

This course is a rigorous introduction to object-oriented programming and computing science using C++, intended for students who have already taken CMPT 130 as an introduction to algorithms and programming. Students will learn basic principles of algorithm design and basic and intermediate techniques for object-oriented software development. It is expected that students already know the C or C++ programming language.

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

Topics

  • Brief review of elementary programming and introduction to C++.
  • Basic object-oriented programming and software design.
  • Polymorphism and inheritance.
  • Program design, specification, and testing; problem solving.
  • Abstract data types; elementary data structures; fundamental algorithms; recursion.
  • An informal introduction to computability and complexity analysis.
  • Templates and the Standard Template Library

Grading

NOTES:

Course work will consists of exercises, quizzes, and programming projects. The marking scheme will be given in the first week of the course.

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).

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 SPRING 2021

Teaching at SFU in spring 2021 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).
