C++ Programming: An Object-Oriented Approach
Computer Science: An Object-Oriented Approach Using C++ has two primary objectives: to teach the basic principles of programming as outlined in the ACM curriculum for a CS1 class and to teach the basic constructs of the C++ language. While C++ is a complex and professional language our experience has shown that beginning students can easily understand and use it.Computer Science: An Object-Oriented Approach Using C++ uses a combination of thorough well-ordered explanations and a strong visual framework to make programming concepts accessible to students. The authors stress incremental program development wherein program analysis is followed by building a structure chart constructing UML flow diagrams writing algorithms undertaking program design and finally testing. This foundation combined with a focus on the benefits of a consistent and well-documented programming style prepares students to tackle the academic and professional programming challenges they will encounter down the road with confidence.
