The course will introduce basic and fundamental programming constructs and techniques through using the C++ programming language in order to generate algorithmic solutions to problems. Upon completion of the course, students will learn an introduction to algorithms, solving problems by flowcharts and pseudo codes, header files, data types, arithmetic & logic operators, control statements (if, if/else, switch-case) and use them as inner statements, loop statements (while, do/while, for),  functions,  standard functions of programming language, random number generation and their area of use, user-defined functions, global and local variables, recursion, arrays, searching algorithms on arrays, sorting algorithms on arrays, pointers, pointer operators, using pointers with arrays and functions. In the laboratory hours, students are writing full programs or modifying existing programs for other solutions.
