A Brief Description and Rational for Proposal


Rational: The proposed revision of the course is designed to accommodate a diverse group of students who are required to take an introductory computer programming course. The majority of these students major in math education, computer graphics, digital imaging, information technology, or computer science. It has been difficult to teach these students how to program. We have experimented with a number of different languages. For the last ten years we have been using Microsoft Visual Basic with very limited success. Visual Basic has extensive syntax requirements, which often hamper students’ understanding of the fundamental programming principles. In this new course revision, we propose to teach programming principles without limiting ourselves to one particular language (i.e., Visual Basic). The proposed new course description would offer us the flexibility to teach programming principles using any languages as we see fit. Currently, we are interested in using a language called Processing. It is a Java based language designed by the Media Lab at MIT to overcome exactly the same obstacles we have encountered with our students in the past. Since its introduction about ten years ago, it has been a tremendous success. Today, it has been widely used by fashion designers, artists, and professional programmers alike. Many colleges, including community colleges, are using it to teach their introductory courses with great results.


Proposed New Course Description:


CST112 / CS12

INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING

This course introduces fundamental programming principles to beginners. Emphasis is placed on algorithm development, structured programming techniques, flowcharting, coding, debugging and libraries. It discusses programming concepts such as variables, conditionals, loops, functions, objects, and arrays. Program output may include graphical elements with images, animation and visualization. The course is designed as a place where many ideas and techniques can mix and is therefore appropriate for a wide audience that includes programmers, as well as people interested in graphical design or analytic fields (science, mathematics, economics, etc.).


Prerequisite: MAT007 or equivalent. Recommended: prior computing experience or completion of CST101.

Prerequisite: MA07 or equivalent. Recommended: prior computing experience or completion of CST101.


NOTE: You must have basic math skills and basic concept of computer systems. Typing skills are necessary but not mandatory. Knowledge of basic operating system commands and familiarity with the Windows environment is required. For example, formatting disks, creating files and directories, and invoking menu items using the mouse input device are some of the prerequisite skills which will be utilized during this class.


COLLEGE STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT:

See College Catalogue and/or Student Handbook.


COURSE OBJECTIVES:

Using the Java-based Processing language, the student will learn the concept of software programming.


Using programming concepts and techniques, the student will be able to:

- Build program controls, such as: Sequence, Selection (IF-THEN-ELSE), and repetition (DO WHILE).

- Write program modules, such as procedures and functions.

- Create complex data structures, such as arrays and files.

- Create Java applets, and program animations, audio and video and data visualization.


PROCEDURES FOR ACCOMPLISHING THESE OBJECTIVES:

- Class lectures, discussion, student participation.

- Hands-on computer lab sessions.

- Use of audio-visual aids and devices.

- Homework, programming assignments and practical problems from the

textbook.


REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPLETION OF THE COURSE:

- Reading of the assigned material prior to and/or within the week indicated on the schedule.

- Taking the three exams on the date and time announced.

- Completion and submission of assignments on or before due date at the beginning of class.

- Satisfactory attendance (see below).


GRADING POLICY:


Three exams..................………...................50%


Assignments....................……….................50%

The grade of "W" is earned only by the student by officially dropping by mid-semester. Otherwise, the student must notify me IN PERSON if he/she desires this grade.


Cheating and plagiarism are not tolerated. A negative grade will be assigned to all parties for any exam, lab work, program, and report where collaboration is used.


ATTENDANCE:

The course and its enrollees are expected to have the experiences on site at SCC. New York State and College-wide rules are the basis for the following:

Attendance is taken at the beginning of class. It is expected that the student will be prepared and present at all scheduled meetings and he/she will be on time and remain until class is dismissed.


Students must stay abreast of the current material whether the absence is "excused" or is a "cut." The student is expected to be prepared at the class meeting following the absence.


A "cut" is an unexcused absence; a maximum of two cuts is permitted. An "excused" absence is one for which the student provides an official document relating to the reason, e.g., a doctor's note on letterhead, court documentation, etc. Employment conflicts with attendance requirements are not tolerated. Excessive absences, defined as missing more than two classes, may lead to a grade of F.


Latenesses translate into cuts: two lates = 1 cut. It is the late student's responsibility to notify the instructor (at the end of class) to change the recorded absence to lateness.


Reasonableness directs the student to contact the instructor when extenuating circumstances are related to absence or lateness. When such occurrences can be discussed in advance, special arrangements might be possible.

Students who do not satisfy the above criteria may be deemed to have unsatisfactory attendance. A student may be removed from the class roster for this reason.


Weekly Outline of Topics and Assignments:


Week 1/2: Pixels, Processing, and Interaction

Week 3/4: Variables, Conditionals, and Loops (Midterm)

Week 5/6: Functions and Objects

Week 7/8: Arrays (Midterm)

Week 9/10: Algorithms, Debugging, and Libraries

Week 11/12: Mathematics, Translation, and Rotation (in 3D!)

Week 13/14: Images, Video and Final Projects

Week 15: Final Projects and Final Project Presentations


Other topics such as text, data input, data streams, Sound, exporting, advanced Object-Oriented Programming, and Java will be covered if time permits.
