CS182 -- Introduction to Computer Programming

Winter 2003-2004

This course provides an introduction to software development using an object-oriented approach and the C++ programming language. Particular emphasis is placed on the design process and the reuse of existing software components, which are critical to the development of large software systems. (prereq: GE-110 or a high school programming course; coreq: MA-127 or equivalent) (3-3-4)


On successful completion of this course, the student will:

  • Understand and apply basic high-level programming language syntax.
  • Be able to design and implement small C++ programs.
  • Understand and be able to apply the Standard Template Library (STL) vector and list classes.
  • Understand and be able to apply selection and iteration in C++ programs.
  • Understand and be able to apply C++ functions.
  • Understand basic aspects of the object model.
  • Be able to use existing C++ class libraries.

The above course description and goals were taken from the official course description.
