Section II: Course Details

Detailed Description
This course introduces students to the basic concepts of computer programming using an object-oriented programming language. Assuming no programming experience, this course will introduce the student to programming principles, object-oriented concepts, language syntax, as well as design considerations when building a programming solution to a given problem. The student will learn how to use programming control statements, built-in and user-defined data types as well as the user of common predefined classes (APIs). Emphasis will be placed on building problem solving and basic algorithm development skills necessary to create object-oriented applications using standard programing best practices and tools.

Course Critical Performance and Learning Outcomes

  Critical Performance:
By the end of this course, students will have demonstrated the ability to write simple object-oriented programs using proper syntax and programming standards and best-practices; test and debug simple programs; write simple programs that accept user input; process the input, and produce formatted outputs. Students will also appreciate and understand the need for program documentation and proper program testing.
 
Learning Outcomes:

To achieve the critical performance, students will have demonstrated the ability to:

  1. Characterize syntax related to control statements and their use in computer programs.
  2. Use and manipulate built-in (primitive) and user-defined data types.
  3. Construct dynamic objects from classes.
  4. Use and manipulate objects for program implementation.
  5. Document and test programs.
  6. Implement, execute, and debug object-oriented programs in an appropriate development environment using industry best-practices and methodologies.
  7. Construct command-line programs that use major syntactic features of the programming language and a basic subset of the common standard library classes.

Evaluation Plan
Students demonstrate their learning in the following ways:

 Evaluation Plan: IN-CLASS
 Test #115.0%
 Test #225.0%
 Final Exam35.0%
 Assignments and/or quizzes (8-12)25.0%
Total100.0%

Evaluation Notes and Academic Missed Work Procedure:
To pass the course, students must achieve a 50% weighted average across the tests and the exams and at least 50% overall in the course.
