Introduction to algorithmic problem solving and computer programming. Designed to provide a foundation for further studies in computer science.
Open to Degree and CDE students
Programming I teaches problem solving, and the problem solving process, in the context of high level computer programming. This section of CS 021 uses Python as a vehicle to introduce the elements of computer programming. Topics will include variables, selection statements, repetition statements, functions, flow of control, simple input/output and basic data structures. Throughout the course, good programming style will be emphasized. The course assumes no prior programming experience. However, students should be proficient working with files within their computing environment and basic high school mathematics concepts (arithmetic, order of operations, etc.) When registering for CS 021, you will have a choice of CS 021 (Green) or CS 021 (Gold). To determine which section is appropriate for you, visit go.uvm.edu/cs21group.
Students are expected to read the chapter and review all supplemental videos and notes each week. There will be a weekly lab that will provide additional practice (in pairs); the assignments will allow students to demonstrate their understanding of the material.
Programming assignments, labs, and two exams will be given during the semester. The course will conclude with a self-designed final project.
