COP 3223: Introduction to C Programming Archive
Note: Up until Fall 2011, I taught C exclusively in this course. Since
then, I have tried various arrangements while making sure students had
enough C to succeed in COP 3502. The most common arrangement was to do
5 weeks of Python followed by 11 weeks of C. With the Honors courses, I
decided to also introduce them to C++. In my latest iteration of the
honors course, I skipped doing Python and simultaneously taught both C and C++.
Python and C++ are langauges that are used extremely infrequently in our
required courses. I gave up trying to change that formally, but use this
class to do an informal introduction to my students so they have a very
basic idea of the structure of Python and C++.
