Course Description

This course combines work on program design, analysis, and verification with an introduction to the study of data structures. Data structures capture common ways in which to store and manipulate data, and they are important in the construction of sophisticated computer programs. We will use the Java programming language in class and for the assignments.

You will be expected to write several programs, ranging from the short and simple to the more complex and challenging as the semester progressess. Since one of our goals in this course is to help you learn how to write large, reliable programs composed from reusable pieces, we will be emphasizing the development of clear, modular programs that are easy to read, debug, verify, analyze, and modify.

Syllabus & Textbook

The course syllabus is here.

We will use Java Structures by Duane A. Bailey. You can find more information about the book here and a link to the PDF version of the book here.
