CS 1110 - Introduction to Computing Using Python


(MQR-AS)      
Fall, spring, summer. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Forbidden overlap: due to a partial overlap in content, students will receive 6 credits instead of 8 if they take CS 1110 and one of the following: CS 1112 , CS 1114 CS 1115 ,  INFO 1100 VISST 1100 .
Students may not enroll in CS 1110 if they have taken or are co-enrolled in CS 2110 /ENGRD 2110 , CS 2112  , or have taken or are co-enrolled in a course offered or cross-listed with a CS number 3000 or above. (Students looking to learn Python rather than learn how to program should take CS 1133  instead). Students who have affiliated with the computer-science major may not enroll. Assumes basic high school mathematics (no calculus) but no programming experience.

Staff.

Programming and problem solving using Python. Emphasizes principles of software development, style, and testing. Topics include procedures and functions, iteration, recusion, arrays and vectors, strings, an operational model of procedure and function calls, algorithms, exceptions, object-oriented programming, and GUIs (graphical user interfaces). Weekly labs provide guided practice on the computer, with staff present to help. Assignments use graphics and GUIs to help develop fluency and understanding.

Outcome 1: Be fluent in the use of procedural statements -assignments, conditional statements, loops, method calls- and arrays. Be able to design, code, and test small Python programs that meet requirements expressed in English. This includes a basic understanding of top-down design.

Outcome 2: Understand the concepts of object-oriented programming as used in Python: classes, subclasses, inheritance, and overriding.

Outcome 3: Have knowledge of basic searching and sorting algorithms. Have knowledge of the basics of vector computation.
