This course is an introduction to Computer Science. Its goal is to help the students develop problem-solving skills, computational thinking, and acquire the fundamental programming skills necessary during the rest of the curriculum. The goals of this course are:

  1. We will study several simple computational problems, some of the algorithms that solve them, and discuss these solutions.
  2. We will learn structured and procedural programming in the C programming language and develop several programs to implement these algorithms.
  3. We will learn several data types, their structure and representation in memory, and ways to manage the memory in a program.
