Course objectives
The aim of the course is to provide students with basic concepts of programming and algorithmization using diagrams and examples in the chosen programming language (Java, Python).
Learning outcomes
After completion of the course, student will be able:
- to define basic data types and more complex data structures;
- to define appropriate data type to store a specific value;
- to design an algorithm to solve the assigned task and to document it using flow diagrams;
- to decompose a more complex algorithm into subprograms;
- to code the algorithm in a selected programming language and debug the program.
  • 1. Introduction, history, definition of basic terms - algorithm, program, complexity.
  • 2. Flow diagrams: definition, sequences, branching, cycles.
  • 3. Addition, volume calculation, triangle, minimum search, quadratic equation, simple calculator.
  • 4. Mean grade, prime numbers, factorial, sum of numerical series.
  • 5. Cycles and examples, the number of characters in a file.
  • 6. Subprograms: definition, parameters, return value, algorithm decomposition, basic sorting algorithms: selection sort, bubble sort.
  • 7. Data types: ordinal, irregular, arrays, examples: reverse listing.
  • 8. Recursion: definition, Fibonacci series - recursive vs. non-recursive solution, binary search - recursive vs. iterative.
