Textbook: B.W. Kernighan and D.M. Ritchie, The C Programming Language, 2nd ed., Prentice Hall, 1988.
Course Objectives: To teach students how to program in general and how to program in C (and a small portion of C++) in particular, with emphasis in hands-on experience of learning various programming tools, such as compiler, linker, and debugger.
General Information and Grading:
This course is designed to teach students programming skills that are fundamental to every information engineering student. We will cover major features of the C programming language, including types, operators, expressions, control flow, functions, pointers, arrays, structures, and file input and output. When appropriate, we will also introduce a small but useful portion of C++, leading students to the topics to be discussed in Programming (II).
Students are required to attend all lectures throughout the semester. Programming assignments will be given every one or two weeks. Please note that these are individual assignments; in other words, each student must complete the assignments on his/her own. Copying someone else’s assignment to pass as your own is an act of cheating and will result in your getting zero on the assignment and/or failing this course. There will be two midterm exams and a final.
Programming assignments 30%
Two midterm exams 35%
