Course objectives
The course is an introduction to programming and algorithmic style of thinking. At the end of the course students should be able to: understand and apply basic constructs of programming languages (e.g., conditions, loops, functions, basic data types) and know several basic algorithms.
  • Basic constructions of imperative programming languages: conditions, loops, data types, functions, input, output.
  • Number types, randomness, algorithms with numbers.
  • Data types, lists, dictionaries, objects.
  • Basic algorithms: prime numbers, sorting, searching. Complexity of algorithms (basics).
  • Recursion.
  • Turtle graphics, bitmap graphics, regular expressions, text processing.
