This course introduces students to C and C++ programming languages, with an emphasis on good programming practices. Topics include object-oriented programming, memory management, and optimization. The course also covers special topics such as arrays, pointers, references, classes, methods, dynamic memory allocation, recursion, linked lists, iterators, and function pointers. Students should be able to write well-decomposed, easy-to-understand code and understand the value that comes with proper variable names, short functionality, and method implementations. This course features weekly coding assignments as well as a final project. (Prerequisite: MATH225)
