- V. Other Pertinent Information
- VI. Catalog Course Description
- This course is a continuation of Computer Science II. This course will apply object-oriented and software engineering techniques to the design and implementation of programs that manipulate complex data structures. Topics include recursion, stacks, queues, linked lists, hash tables, and trees.
- VII. Required Course Content and Direction
Course Learning Goals
- solve problems using complex data structures;
- design programs that demonstrate understanding of fundamental computing algorithms; and
- practice basic principles of software engineering for designing and implementing programs with emphasis on algorithm analysis and top-down design, using good programming style and documentation.
Planned Sequence of Topics and/or Learning Activities
- Inheritance and Polymorphism
- Array-Based Lists
- Sorting Algorithms
- Binary Trees
- Hash Tables
- Algorithmic Analysis and Strategies
- Software Engineering
Assessment Methods for Course Learning GoalsStudents will be evaluated via test results and problem solving. Evaluation will include: writing, testing, and documentation of complete programs. There will be at least 2 one-hour proctored examinations. The laboratory grade will be comprised of no more than one-third of the course grade.
Reference, Resource, or Learning Materials to be used by Student:Departmentally-selected textbook. Details provided by the instructor of each course section. See course syllabus.
