This course provides students with a basic understanding of programming development practices. Concepts covered include the application of algorithms and logic to the design and development of procedural and object oriented computer programs to address the problem solving requirements associated with business information systems. This course will cover procedural programming concepts including data types, controls structures, functional decomposition, arrays, and files, classes and objects.
Compare and contrast procedural and object-oriented programming.
Differentiate between sequential and direct access.
Demonstrate reading and writing sequential files in pseudocode.
Structures, Verification, and Validation
Verify algorithms using requirements and desk review design.
Apply arrays to program logic and data manipulation.
Define objects and object-oriented classes.
Explain array structures.
Apply flowcharts to represent logic.
Examine the iteration control structure.
Demonstrate the sequential and selection processing control structure.
Problem Solving and Algorithm Development
Describe the importance of using a structured modular approach to program development.
Define the process of algorithm development.
Analyze the development of procedural and object-oriented problem solutions.
Describe the process and methods for problem recognition.
Describe procedural and object-oriented programming languages.
Identify how a computer processes and stores data.
