Course objectives
The main aim of the course Introduction to Programming I is to introduce students to basic principles of computer problem-solving. This course is based on the use of the C programming language.
Learning outcomes
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.
  • Basic concepts, units of information.
  • Design of algorithms - phases of task processing on a computer. Algorithm - algorithm properties, possibilities of algorithm notation, design of simple algorithms.
  • Programming languages - compiler. C programming language. Basic lexical units of C language. Program structure in C language.
  • C language commands - input and output functions, assignment, composed command, conditional command, loop commands.
  • Data types - integer types, char type, real types, enumerated types.
  • Switch command.
  • Structured data types - array, strings.
  • Pointer type.
  • Searching and sorting algorithms - linear and binary searching, sorting methods of SelectSort, BubbleSort and InsertSort.
  • Subprograms (functions). Formal and actual parameters, global and local objects.

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
Colloquium takes place in computer classroom and students code a program solving a given problem. Afterwards, the solution of the given problem is discussed.
