Student Learning Outcomes
The student will demonstrate the principles of top-down design, data abstraction and information hiding in their program design and implementation..

The student will be create programs with the properties and implementations of basic data structures (strings, records, linked lists, queues, trees, heaps, graphs, stacks).

The student will analyze algorithms for efficiency using Big “O” notation.

The student will demonstrate the basic aspects of recursion, internal searching and sorting within their programs produced.

The student will design, code, debug, and test programs of moderate (500-1000 lines) complexity.
