CMPS5C: Introduction to Programming in C/C++


Students learn programming and documentation skills as well as algorithmic problem-solving and programming methodologies. Introduces computers, compilers, and editors. Students write small to medium-sized programs. No prior programming experience required, but a mathematics background at the pre-calculus level is assumed. This course and courses 5J and 5P cover similar concepts, but use different programming languages. This course is recommended for students that have a specific desire or need to learn C/C++; others are encouraged to consider taking course 5P or 5J which use languages that provide a gentler introduction to programming.(Formerly course 60N.)
