|Computer Science Skills Checklist|
|Students in the dual credit Introduction to Computer Science course |
will be able relate key information technology skills to their potential work futures and use C++ to
- for - repeating a sequence of program steps a fixed number of times.
- while - repeating a sequence of program steps while one or more conditions is true.
- if - executing a sequence of program steps one time if a condition is true.
- else - executing a sequence of program steps when the “if condition” is not true
- Write information to a data file.
- Read information from a data file.
- Use functions to solve specific program steps instead of placing all code in one large program.
- Use arrays and vectors to store multiple items with the same data type in lists.
- Use structures to store multiple items with the varying data types in a single record or database entry.
- Employ a C++ class to create a data abstraction that involves attributes and operations that can be performed on those attributes to perform object oriented programming.
- Employ recursion to repeat a specific program step.
- Use stepwise refinement practices to build a complex program by focusing on manageable segments using functions and classes.
- Sort a list efficiently.
- Search a list efficiently.
