The course covers fundamentals of data organization and basic algorithms for data manipulation. Topics include arrays, lists, stacks, queues, trees, sets, and hash tables. Fundamentals of algorithm performance are introduced, with an emphasis placed on time complexity analysis. Special emphasis is placed on appropriate use of containers, iterators, and algorithms defined in the C++ standard library. Laboratory assignments involve both the use and implementation of common data structures. (prereq: CS-183) (2-2-3)
On successful completion of this course, the student will:

Quizzes will be given nearly every week. They will be announced at least one lecture in advance. The lowest quiz score will be dropped. No make-up quizzes will be given.
Unless stated otherwise, all laboratory assignments will be completed in teams of two. One lab report should be submitted for each team. Lab assignments are worth 100 points per week of the assignment.

* I would like to have lunch with you individually or as a group to get to know you better. If we eat in RWJ, housing will pick up my lunch bill. If you would prefer to eat elsewhere, we will each be responsible for our own bill. Feel free to suggest another time if the time above does not work for you.
