ICS 111 offers an overview of the fundamentals of computer science emphasizing problem solving, algorithm development, implementation, and debugging/testing using an object-oriented programming language.
Student Learning Outcomes
- Use an appropriate programming environment to design, code, compile, run and debug computer programs.
- Demonstrate basic problem solving skills: analyzing problems, modeling a problem as a system of objects, creating algorithms, and implementing models and algorithms in an object-oriented computing language.
- Illustrate basic programming concepts such as program flow and syntax of a high-level general purpose language and basic security practices.
- Demonstrate working with primitive data types, strings and arrays.
Note: A minimum grade of B is required in this course to progress to ICS 211.
No textbook is required.
