||Introduction to Computing
This course provides an overview of computing science concepts for students with little or no programming background. Topics include representation of data, machine architecture, operating system concepts, properties of algorithms and computational problems, syntax of a high-level procedural programming language, basic data types and control structures. Students do introductory programming in this course.
||Elementary Data Structures
The course provides a review of programming principles (specification, implementation and testing), and an extension of object-oriented concepts from CS1140 including data abstraction, modular program construction and program reuse. The emphasis is on dynamic data structures (eg. lists, string, stacks, queues, tables), and their associated algorithms (eg. recursion, traversal, sorting, searching, hashing).
