Programming 1, WorkText in ITC-02 was created to enable Information Technology students understand the basics of programming using the C++ Language. It is designed in such a way that the context of the language can be easily comprehended by the students with less of the jargons of a computer language.
The authors discussed the programming concepts thatwill introduce the students to the world of programming. They tackled the components of the computer system, the steps used in programming, the elements and the programming paradigms. The second chapter deals mainly in the history of Programming Languages where the Control Structures and Flowcharts are also discussed. This WorkText also included the discussion about Code:Blocks, its parts and functions.
The WorkText also has a comprehensive discussion about the identifiers and data types, the operations that can be used in programming (mathematical, relational and logical) and assignment statements. The simple Input/Output commands are also given ample discussions.
The last part is consist of the decision making structure wherein data is subjected to comparison and the course of action of the program will be based on the value of the comparison.
Seatworks and Laboratory Exercises are also included in this WorkText so that students will be able to apply what they have learned through the discussions.
