Listed in: Computer Science, as COSC-12
A continuation of Computer Science 11. This course will emphasize more complicated problems and their algorithmic solutions. The object-oriented programming paradigm will be discussed in detail, including data abstraction, inheritance and polymorphism. Other topics will include the implementation of simple data structures and the use of finite-state machines in algorithm design. A laboratory section will meet once a week to give students practice with programming constructs. Two class hours and one one-hour laboratory per week. Requisite: Computer Science 11 or consent of the instructor. This course is the appropriate starting point for most students with some prior programming experience. It is open to students who took Computer Science 11 before 2003-04 only with consent of the instructor. First semester: Professor Kaplan. Second semester: Professor L. McGeoch.
