CS 123 - Computer Programming 3 - Java Data Structures

Credits: 5
Computer programming using the Java language that focuses on the implementation and analysis of elementary data structures (array-list, linked list, binary search tree, etc) and related algorithms.  Introduces recursion, linked lists, references, as tools in the development of these structures.

Enrollment Requirement: CS 122  with grade of 1.0 or higher; or instructor consent.

Course Fee: $20.00

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Design and implement the underlying data structures used by the traditional list, set and map implementations used in Java.
  2. Describe, implement and debug simple algorithms using the concept of recursion as a tool for data structure implementation.
  3. Study complexity and performance tradeoffs using classical algorithms and correct notation such as Big-O.
  4. Demonstrate the ability to combine multiple aspects of the design process to implement a solution to a computer science problem.

Program Outcomes
  1. Provide detailed and accurate descriptions of various physical systems.
  2. Solve multi-step problems in physical analysis.
  3. Identify pertinent elements of physical systems and problems.
  4. Design meaningful experiments and clearly report their conclusions.
  5. Interpret scientific data including the results of experiments designed by others.
  6. Apply mathematical tools to the solution of complex problems.
  7. Use electronic and numerical instruments as tools for investigation and analysis.

College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
  • Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning - Quantitative Reasoning encompasses abilities necessary for a student to become literate in today’s technological world. Quantitative reasoning begins with basic skills and extends to problem solving.
