5015.13 - Object Based Programming in C++

Course number
Object Based Programming in C++
Introduction to computer science (7.5 ECTS), Introductory Programming in C++
Introduction to object oriented concepts and programming with specification, design, implementation and use of classes in C++. Focus is on the concept of classes and the use of objects. The students will also learn about the use of dynamical memory, pointers and recursion; and about typical abstract data types such as cue, stacks and lists. UML will be introduced as a modeling language.
- object oriented concepts: classes, members, operations, attributes, objects, instance, inheritance, relations, messaging etc. - specification and implementation of classes in C++ - operator overloading - const-declarations - abstract data types: cue, stacks and lists - use of dynamic memory - pointers and their applications - iterations in the standard library, also the relations with pointers - recursive algorithms - container classes in the standard library - the students own implementations of algorithms for sorting and searching - UML-diagrams for classes, objects, activities and sequences
Learning and teaching approaches
Remote education from Mid Sweden University.
Learning outcomes
By the end of the course, the student should be able to: - use operator overloading - explore constant types for members, object references and pointers - use pointers in practical programming and in relation to use of dynamical memory - use iterations in the standard library - describe differences and similarities between pointers and references - specify and implement classes and design the corresponding class diagram in UML - use objects of different types as data members in a class - describe the difference between deep- and shallow copy and be able to use operator overloading in this context - specify and implement an ordinary abstract data structure as a class and use it - use recursion
Assessment method
Approved exercises (3 ECTS), approved theoretical examination (1.5 ECTS) and a programming project (3 ECTS), which will be graded and count for the final grade for this course. Note: students that have not delivered any required course work during the first 3 weeks of the course may risk to be excluded from the course.
