Intended learning outcomes

After completing this course, the students should be able to use data and program structures to represent computational problems and their solutions. More specifically, the students should be able to:

  • exhibit a good understanding of the basic concepts in computer programming
  • use an interactive programming environment to systematically and incrementally construct programs
  • represent recursive and interative algorithms for problem solving
  • construct data and program structures that facilitate design of programs that are reusable, easy to understand and easy to maintain
  • successfully carry out a small programming project and write the required documentation

Course content

  • Introduction to the programming environment used during the labs.
  • The programming language SCHEME (a dialect of LISP): expressions, symbols, lists, variables and environments, lambda-notation, procedures, higher-order procedures.
  • Abstraction methods: procedure abstraction, data abstraction with abstract data types and interfaces.
  • Evaluation models: recursive and iterative processes.
  • Basic data structures: trees, queues and tables. Pointers.
  • Programming paradigms: functional, imperative and object oriented programming,
  • Models for program interpretation: the substitution model and the environment model.
  • Models for objects and state. Assignment.
  • Organization and modularity of larger programs. Data-driven programming,
  • Specification and documentation of a project.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures, problem classes and laboratory work with programming assignments. The course runs over the entire spring semester.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.
