Textbook:
C++: How to Program, 4th Edition -- Deitel, H.M and Deitel, P.J.
Prentice Hall, 2003

Additional Resources:
In addition to the text book, the student will need to have and be able to use Visual C++.  An introductory copy is included with the text book.


Course Description:
This course continues the development of the programming and problem  solving skills introduced in CS 219.  Programming concepts will be put into  practice by using C++ for programming projects.  Since C++ is so similar    to Java and since students should already know Java from their prerequisite  courses, this course will cover C++ basics (control constructs, operators,  data types, functions) very quickly.   More time will be spent on those  features of C++ that differ from Java.  For example, more time will be  spent on pointers, object-oriented programming techniques, and operator  overloading. Prerequisite: A grade of ‘C' or better in CS219. 3:0:3

Grading:
There will be two examinations, a midterm and a comprehensive final. There will be 4 programming assignments due during the term.  Additionally, each student will submit a journal each week discussing the topic of the week, and lessons learned.

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
