|This is a course in computer programming concepts for students with little or no programming experience. The intent is to teach students to write both clear and efficient C programs by emphasizing structured programming principles. This course is intended as a first course for information systems majors, for students of other scientific disciplines, and for a functional introduction to programming.|
For the entire course, we will be using the Borland C++ Version 5.0 Compiler for Windows. Borland C++ is available at the Tisch LC-11 Stern lab and all Academic Computer Facility (ACF) computer labs. Other students wishing to work at home can purchase Borland Builder 5.0 (which includes Borland C++ Version 5.0) from the NYU Computer Book Store for approximately $50.
In order to save your computer programs, please purchase a few high-density floppy disks. (also available at the NYU Computer Book Store.)
|If you do not already have one, you will also need to obtain a Stern or ACF Email/Unix account. These accounts will be necessary for subscribing to the electronic mailing list and for corresponding with the class E-tutor.|
|Exams and Grading|
The course will include a number of programming assignments,
one midterm, and one final exam. Your grade will be calculated as follows:
