Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The student can obtain up to 22 points for the activity in computer labs, up to 20 points for tests in semester and 28 points for the final test. An individual project in C can be honored by 30 points (maximally).
Language of instruction
Algorithmization (extensions of basic knowledge from the previous semester). Definition of the task, the definition of inputs / outputs, expressing
an algorithm in meta-language, rewritting into programming language. Introduction to C language. Basic types of variables, derived types, constants, arrays.
Expressions, arithmetic conversions, arithmetic operators, shift operators, relation operators, logical operators, bitwise operators, assignment
operators, operator priority. Strings and their operators, library functions, standard library string.h. Commands, compound statements, branching commands, cycles and control commands. Flowchart. Function. Declaration of functions, methods of function calling, treatment events, recursion of functions. Advanced data types. Union, enum, dynamic variable, pointer. Objects. Lexical elements, constants and strings, classes, objects, object types. User interface of Microsoft Visual C++ Studio. Graphical components. Algorithms Finding maxima and minima, sorting. Programming with arrays, matrices operations. Programming with files in Windows. Database systems. Records, sorting, searching, statistics. Linking of databases.
Educating students in algorithmic and programming thinking. Explaining basic properties and structures of language C. Preparing students for exploration of Borland C++ Builder.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
