Exclusions
Description To introduce basic concepts of computer programming in a procedural language. In so doing, students will both gain practical experience in programming, use some of the basic structures of concepts of procedural programming and have an insight into some of the capabilities and limitations of programming.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Identify data types and be able to manipulate them
  • Identify basic programming constructs such as sequence, branching and iteration and construct programming code using these constructs
  • Reason using Boolean logic, both in in constructing conditional expressions and with truth tables
  • Understand and use simple problem decomposition in designing programs, particularly in the use of functions and procedures.
