Course objectives
The main aim of the course Introduction to Programming using C is to introduce students to basic principles of computer problem-solving. This course is based on the use of the C programming language.
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
design an algorithm to solve a given problem;
code an algorithm in the C programming language;
debug a created program.
  • Programming languages, compiler.
  • Output functions, constants, expressions.
  • Variables, declarations, input functions.
  • Assignment statement, conditional statement, loops.
  • Algorithms based on recurrence relation.
  • Data types (abstraction, representation, data processing): array, string, struct, union, file.
  • Functions, parameters, recursion.
  • Numerical algorithms: precision, errors.
  • Non-numerical algorithms: text processing.
  • Algorithm analysis: correctness, efficiency.
  • Pointer type. Dynamic data structures.

Teaching methods
Theoretical lectures with examples - 2 hours per week (the attendance is optional), class exercises - 2 hours per week (class exercises take place in a computer classroom, the attendance is mandatory, and the students also must successfully pass intrasemestral tests and make homeworks).
Assessment methods
Assesment consists of 3 parts: 4 homeworks (points are subtracted for each incorrect homework - max. 4), 2 intrasemestral tests with computer usage (total 60 points), and final written exam (40 points). It is required to obtain at least 56 points to pass the exam successfully. It is necessary to obtain at least 30 points from intrasemestral tests (after subtraction of points from incorrect homeworks) to pass a "credit".
