CISP 300    Algorithm Design/Problem Solving    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Corequisite: CISC 310
Advisory: CISC 305
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course introduces the Computer Science major to methods for solving classical computer problems through algorithm design. Topics covered include introduction to structured design, control structures, arrays, object oriented programming, and file processing. Students will learn how to assess and analyze computer problems in a top-down, divide-and-conquer approach that leads to a programming solution. It also includes creating programming plans and detailed design documents from which source code versions of programs will be created.
