Objective The purpose of this course is to improve students programming capabilities by the study of some common algorithms, their implementations and their applications to sample computational problems.
Content Programming review (with Python): variables and state, conditionals, loops, functions
Basic data structures: list, multi dimensional array, tree
Common algorithms: search, sort, aggregate functions
Recursion: numeric computation, tree traversal (inorder/preorder/postorder)
Algorithm Analysis: time/space complexity classes
Course Learning Outcomes When given a problem, students will be able to identify logical parts of the problem, their interdependencies and algorithms which can be used to solve each.
When given an algorithm, students will be able to compare its performance and characteristics to other algorithms of the same class.
When given a source code, students will be able to identify data structures and algorithms that are implemented in the given source code.
