CS 1110

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Programming and problem solving using Python. Emphasizes principles of software development, style, and testing. Topics include procedures and functions, iteration, recusion, arrays and vectors, strings, an operational model of procedure and function calls, algorithms, exceptions, object-oriented programming, and GUIs (graphical user interfaces). Weekly labs provide guided practice on the computer, with staff present to help. Assignments use graphics and GUIs to help develop fluency and understanding.

When Offered Fall, spring, summer.

Permission Note Students may not enroll in CS 1110 if they have taken or are co-enrolled in CS 2110/ENGRD 2110, CS 2112 , or have taken or are co-enrolled in a course offered or cross-listed with a CS number 3000 or above. (Students looking to learn Python rather than learn how to program should take CS 1133 instead). Students who have affiliated with the computer-science major may not enroll.
Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden overlap: due to a partial overlap in content, students will receive 6 credits instead of 8 if they take CS 1110 and one of the following: CS 1112, CS 1114, CS 1115,  INFO 1100, VISST 1100.
