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 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.
