Course Number and Title: ITN 262 Programming III
This course explores advanced programming concepts such as stacks, queues, recursion, linked lists, trees, searching and sorting in order to write effective and efficient code for large-scale problems. Students model real-world scenarios by implementing various data structures within event-driven applications.
Access to high-speed Internet.
- Differentiate among various types of data structures. (CCC 2, 5, 6; PGC 1, 3)
- Create computer programs using various data structures. (CCC 2, 5, 6; PGC 1, 3, 4)
- Implement various data structures for optimal use in real world scenarios. (CCC 2, 5, 6; PGC 1, 3, 4, 5)
See Core Curriculum Competencies and Program Graduate Competencies at the end of the syllabus. CCPOs are linked to every competency they develop.
Upon completion of this course, the student will:
- Differentiate among various types of data structures.
- Describe types of data structures such as stacks, queues, recursion, and linked lists.
- Describe primitive and abstract data types.
- Explain fundamental computing algorithms of data structures such as binary search trees, searching, and sorting in computer programs.
- Compare and contrast how various types of data structures are used to construct computer programs.
- Create computer programs using various data structures.
- Evaluate different data structures for optimal use in real world scenarios.
- Identify the steps to incorporate data structures in programs and applications.
- Illustrate the use of each data structure in real world applications.
- Create code to implement selected data structures in different situations.
- Implement various data structures for optimal use in real world scenarios.
- Compare and contrast the performance of different data structures with various data sets.
- Demonstrate the performance of alternative implementations of data structures.
- Explain the costs and benefits in terms of time and memory storage of dynamic and static data structure implementations.
- Select and implement the appropriate data structure for a given set of problem specifications.
Students must demonstrate proficiency on all CCPOs at a minimal 75 percent level to successfully complete the course. The grade will be determined using the Delaware Tech grading system:
Students should refer to the Student Handbook for information on the Academic Standing Policy, the Academic Integrity Policy, Student Rights and Responsibilities, and other policies relevant to their academic progress.
