AbstractThe course covers the fundamental concepts of computer programming with a focus on systematic algorithmic problem solving. Taught language is C++. No programming experience is required.
ObjectivePrimary educational objective is to learn programming with C++. When successfully attended the course, students have a good command of the mechanisms to construct a program. They know the fundamental control and data structures and understand how an algorithmic problem is mapped to a computer program. They have an idea of what happens "behind the scenes" when a program is translated and executed.
Secondary goals are an algorithmic computational thinking, understanding the possibilities and limits of programming and to impart the way of thinking of a computer scientist.
ContentThe course covers fundamental data types, expressions and statements, (Limits of) computer arithmetic, control statements, functions, arrays, structural types and pointers. The part on object orientation deals with classes, inheritance and polymorphy, simple dynamic data types are introduced as examples.
In general, the concepts provided in the course are motivated and illustrated with algorithms and applications.
Lecture notesA script written in English will be provided during the semester. The script and slides will be made available for download on the course web page.

Additional information on mode of examinationDurch Bearbeitung der wöchentlichen Übungsserien kann ein Bonus von maximal 0.25 Notenpunkten erarbeitet werden, der an die Prüfung mitgenommen wird. Der Bonus ist proportional zur erreichten Punktzahl von speziell markierten Bonus-Aufgaben, wobei volle Punktzahl einem Bonus von 0.25 entspricht. Die Zulassung zu speziell markierten Bonusaufgaben kann von der erfolgreichen Absolvierung anderer Übungsaufgaben abhängen. Der erreichte Notenbonus verfällt, sobald die Vorlesung neu gelesen wird.

Prüfung kann am Computer stattfinden.
Written aidsSie dürfen maximal 4 A4-Blätter mit in die Prüfung nehmen. Inhaltliche und formale Anforderungen (Text, Bilder, ein-/doppelseitig, Ränder, Schriftgrösse, etc.) bestehen nicht. Elektronische Geräte bzw. digitale Unterlagen sind nicht erlaubt.

You may take up to 4 A4 sheets into the exam. There are no constraints regarding content and layout (text, images, single/double page, margins, font size, etc.). Electronic devices and digital documents are not allowed.
Online examinationThe examination may take place on the computer.
If the course unit is part of an examination block, the credits are allocated for the successful completion of the whole block.
This information can be updated until the beginning of the semester; information on the examination timetable is binding.
