This fast-paced course sequence (with CSS 343) is intended to bring entering students' backgrounds up to a level where they can take Junior and Senior level CSS courses. By the end of this quarter, you will be familiar with much of the C++ language and the basics of object-oriented programming. You will understand how to analyze a problem and design a solution. You will know many basic data structures, algorithms, and the tradeoffs among memory, running time, and implementation time associated with them. Topics include: data abstraction, recursion, computational complexity and algorithm analysis, linked lists, stacks, queues, trees, searching and sorting, templates, and introductory object-oriented programming and design. Additional discrete math topics are covered including number bases and representation, mathematical induction, propositional and predicate logic.

    The CSS windows lab is UW1-310, the CSS linux lab is UW1-320.
    (School general lab is in UW2-140.)
    There are tutors available in 310 or 320 to help with your programs:   Fall 2014 schedule

    Do not allow non-CSS students in our labs (most importantly so they will not consume our resources). If resource consumption is abused, your lab fee will be increased.
