Learning outcomes of the course unit:
To understand problems of algorithmization and basic principles of programming paradigms. To understand and to be able to program recursive algorithms, selected searching and sorting algorithms. To understand and to use correctly the arithmetic-logic operations, basic data types and data structures, commands for controlling program flow (branching, loops, functions), core libraries for working with memory and input-output devices. To understand the principles and benefits of object oriented programming. To get an overview of the properties and usability of selected programming languages. To be able to design an algorithm solving simple problem, to write an algorithm in a programming language (C, C++), to debug created program, to verify the correctness of the program and to create a program documentation.
Course contents:
Problem, algorithm, program. Life cycle of the program. Characteristics, properties , classification and registration forms algorithms. The complexity of algorithms. Principles of some sorting and searching algorithms features, comparison, usability. Compilation, programming languages ( source code, compilation, linking, libraries), development environment. Structure of the source text in the C language, types of variables, declaration, scope, their properties, pointers, references. Basic types of data structures ( static, dynamic ). Operators and commands in C language, functions, parameters, recursion. Operating memory, files, input-output subsystem, libraries, the use of the operating system services. Numerical algorithms, iteration, recursion, convergence of the algorithm, errors and accuracy of results. Processing of text data (string, character encoding). Language C++, differences from the C language. Object-oriented programming - encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism, class, object, method, operators. Debugging, verification and testing programs. Programming paradigms - types and basic principles. Programming languages (object-oriented, logical, functional, scripting), comparison of their properties and applicability.
