CS 1110

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

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.

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, BEE 1510.

All (and only) masters and PhD students must enroll in discussion section CS 1110-214 (18823), not any of the other sections. You may opt to enroll in a 1-credit Academic Excellence Workshop (AEW) to be taken in conjunction with this course. AEWs are weekly collaborative problem-solving workshops designed to enhance student understanding of course material. AEWs are facilitated by upper-level engineering students. They are graded S/U based on attendance. In order to attend an AEW, you must enroll in an AEW section, listed under course number ENGRG 1010.
