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.
20% Midterm Exam
30% Final Exam
15% Student Journals
Letter grades will be awarded on the basis of the following percentages
Late Submission of Course Materials: Programming assignments should be turned in at the specified time. Late assignments will receive at least a 10 point deduction for each day the assignment is late.
