At the end of the course students should be able to:
Understand and use basic C syntax according to ANSI and ISO/IEC norms.
Decompose given problem and perform practical implementation.
Use modern development tools (IDE, debugger, version control...).

Teaching consists from theoretical lectures combined with the practical exercises and programming homework selected to practice topics from lectures.
During the whole semester, student will undertake 5 programming homework, one written tests and one final programming exercise. 95 points are required to pass the course in addition to successful completion of requirements of practical exercises.
The students are working on given homework (usually finalized at home or in computer lab). Homework are awarded by point according to given criteria. Recommended finalization is exam, which is maintained as test questionnaire on computer. Precondition for undertake exam is to have awarded credit from practical exercises and autonomously programmed final assignment. Classification is based on points gathered from exercises, test questionnaire and final assignment.
Participation on practical exercises is mandatory, unless teacher allows for exception (e.g., based on student exceptional knowledge of the subject).
