CSCI 1010 - Introduction to Computer Programming


Computer programming is a way of thinking. A successful programmer needs to take a word problem, generate a pseudocode algorithm, and convert it to the syntax of a specific programming language. This course is an alternative to CSCI 1100 and is intended for students who want an introduction to this programming process but do not intend to do further course work in programming or computer science. Emphasis will be on the generation of the algorithms and problem solving. This course is offered in Python, an approachable language with relatively low syntax complexity, which allows students to concentrate on the fundamentals without becoming sidetracked by language specifics. It also affords students a tool for creating useful personal applications or prototypes in the future. Students cannot get credit for this course if they have already taken any other CSCI course.

When Offered: Fall term annually. (Fall 2019 is the final offering of this course.)



Credit Hours: 4
