Programming and Algorithms Damian Gordon Module Description This module is an introduction to programming, program design and algorithms. Students are introduced to a structured procedural programming language and to commonly used algorithms and their implementation. This module assumes no prior knowledge of programming or algorithms. The aims of this module are to:

Teach the fundamentals of procedural programming Teach the principles of good program design, implementation, documentation and testing. Teach the theory and application of elementary algorithms and data structures. Learning Outcomes On Completion of this module, the learner will be able to Design and write computer elementary programs in a structured procedural language. Use a text editor with command line tools and simple Integrated

Development Environment (IDE) to compile, link and execute program code. Divide a computer program into modules. Test computer programs to ensure compliance with requirements. Implement elementary algorithms and data structures in a procedural language. Indicative Syllabus Introduction: What is a program? Source code. Machine code. Editing, Compiling, Linking Debugging. Use of an Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

Basic Data Types: integer, floating-point and character data and variables. Basic Input-Output: Display data on a screen. Input data from the keyboard. Programming Structures: Conditional statements: Boolean values and expressions, logical and relational operators, if-statement, casestatement, compound conditional statements. Indicative Syllabus Iterative constructs: while-statements, for-statements and nested control statements. Structured Programming: functions, parameter passing,

returning values. Introduction to Data Structures: single-dimensional arrays, two-dimensional arrays, dynamically allocated arrays Indicative Syllabus Basic Algorithms: summation, counting, numeric operations, swapping, maximum and minimum, simple array manipulation. Elementary Sorting Algorithms: Internal Sorting. Exchange sort. Interchange sort. Bubble sort. Shaker sort. Insertion sort. Testing and debugging: Objectives and principles of testing.

Choosing appropriate test data. Simple debugging using a program trace. Documentation: Style guidelines. Indicative Syllabus Assessment Type Weighting (%)
