Obligation : Must
Prerequisite courses : -
Concurrent courses : ELE122
Delivery modes : Face-to-Face
Learning and teaching strategies : Lecture, Question and Answer, Problem Solving. Other: This course must be taken together with "ELE 122 Computers and Programming Laboratory" course.
Course objective : First and foremost aim of the course is to teach the student an introduction to programming using C as a programming language. To do this, program analysis, different ways of writing a program and access to a conclusion, efficient program writing, written documentation of the program, the ability to write clear and uniform rules, the acquisition of the appropriate program error debugging is explained. In addition, the ability to create a modular software is aimed. Furthermore, the data structures are explained. Examples from structured programming is taught with C programming as a sample programming language.
Learning outcomes : A student who completes the course successfully, 1. Learns a high level language, 2. Models a solution to an encountered problem using a high level language, 3. Learns to solve problems in the most efficient way by knowing and understanding the techniques and algorithms of a high level language.
Course content : Programming structures and introduction to high level languages. Program analysis. Description of the problem solution. Implementation of algorithms as programs. Debugging a program. Reading and storing data. Data types. Introduction to control structures. Decision structures. Expressions, strings. Built-in functions and user defined functions. Loops and nested loop structures. Subroutines. Arrays and subscripts. Formatted output and files. Pointers. Characters, strings. Recursion. File processing. Structures, enumerations. Dynamic memory allocation.
