Course objectives
The main aim of the course Introduction to Programming is to introduce students to basic principles of computer problem-solving. This course is based on the use of the Pascal 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 Pascal programming language;
debug a created program.
  • Programming languages, compiler.
  • Output statements, constants, expressions.
  • Variables, input statements.
  • Assignment statement, conditional statement, loops.
  • Algorithms based on recurrence relation.
  • Data types (abstraction, representation, data processing): array, string, set, record, file, text file.
  • Procedures and functions, parameters, recursion, side effect.
  • Numerical algorithms: precision, errors.
  • Non-numerical algorithms: text processing.
  • Algorithm analysis: correctness, efficiency.
  • Pointer type. Dynamic data structures.

Teaching methods
Theoretical lectures with examples, practical lessons, homeworks.
Assessment methods
Lectures - 2 hours per week (the attendance is optional), class exercises - 2 hours per week (class exercises take place in a computer classroom and the attendance is mandatory, the students also must submit all required homeworks and successfully pass intrasemestral test).
The examination consists of two parts: the theoretical part (written examination without computers, 60 minutes, 5 questions) and the practical part (written examination with a computer usage, 70 minutes. During this part students code a program solving a given problem). The practical part can be passed only after a successful passing of the theoretical part.
