CSCI240 Algorithms and Data Structures I (3 semester hours)

This course strengthens and broadens students' awareness of existing trends in the development of object-oriented programming. Students expand their use of a structured design method to provide systematic analysis of performance and systematic proof of correctness. Students gain a deeper understanding of concepts like implementations of abstract data types and present data structures linked to stacks, queues, and hashes. The course will also address advanced concepts related to algorithms that will include divide-and-conquer and dynamic programming. Students will also learn how to analyze different algorithm development as well as various sorting strategies. (Prerequisites: CSCI140 or CSCI150)
