Here is your chance to learn how to program the easy way in C++. Introduction to C++ Programming is a project-oriented course taught by a master programming instructor and published author. You will get right to programming in this course--even if you have no prior programming experience! Before you know it, you will be putting together programs, and you will see how easy programming really is.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you are encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
Lesson 01 - Your First C++ Program
In your first lesson, you will learn what a computer program is. Whats the best way to learn programming? You have to write programs, of course! Your first step toward writing your first program is to install VisualStudio. So today, you will learn how to install Visual Studio on your computer, and after that, we will walk through creating your first program.
Lesson 02 - Understanding Your C++ Code and How to Fix Errors
you have created a working C++ application. Today, you will find out what each line of C++ code means in your "Hello World!" program. we will also discuss how this C++ code is translated to machine language that the computer understands and can execute as a running program. Finally, you will learned how to see and fix errors in your code.
Lesson 03 - Data Types and Computer Memory
In today's lesson, you will learn about the different areas of computer memory. you will find out about data types, which correspond to the different types of information a program uses, and you will write a program that can determine the amount of computer memory used by different data types. This lesson lays the foundation for Lesson 4, where you will learn how to store different types of information in computer memory while your program is running.
Lesson 04 - Storing Data in Variables
Today you will learn how to create variables of different data types to store information. you will find out how to declare variables, which is the first step to using them. you will then learn how to assign values to variables, using both the assignment operator and cin. you will also access and output a variable's value.
Lesson 05 - Letting the Computer Do the Math
Computers can not think for themselvesânot yet anyway. But computers can calculate faster and more accurately than humans can. In this lesson, you will learn how to harness the computer's calculating power with the C++ arithmetic operators.
Lesson 06 - Letting the User Choose
Life involves choices, and so do computer programs. In this lesson, you will learn how to use the different C++ comparison operators and control structures so different blocks of code execute depending on the users choice.
Lesson 07 - Combining Choices
Choices can be complicated. For example, you may want code to execute only if two choices are made, or if either of two choices are made. In this lesson, you will how to use nested control structures and the different C++ logical operators when more than one choice determines which block of code executes.
Lesson 08 - Repeating Code With Loops
Your parents may have told you not to repeat yourself, but code often needs to repeat. In this lesson, you will learn how to use loops to make code repeat until a condition is met.
Lesson 09 - Using Arrays
Often, you may need to store more than one item of information, such as multiple test scores. In this lesson, you will find out how to use arrays to store multiple items of information. Sure, you could also just use multiple variables, but with arrays, you also can harness the power of loops, which you learned about in the last lesson.
Lesson 10 - C Strings for Storing Text
Not all information are numbers. you will often need to store text, such as names. In this lesson, you will discover how to use C strings to store non-numeric information in an array.
Lesson 11 - Functions for Dividing and Organizing Code
What if your favorite textbook was just one very long paragraph with no chapters or sections? The content would be the same, but it would be much more difficult to read and follow, wouldn't it? Similarly, code, as it gets longer and more complicated, needs to be organized. In this lesson, you will learn how to use functions to divide tasks and organize your code.
Lesson 12 - Saving and Retrieving Data
Microsoft Word wouldn't be very useful if you couldn't save your work and had to type it all over again each time you ran the program! Being able to save your work is important, but you also need to be able to load that saved work back into your program the next time you run it. In this lesson, you will learn how to use file input/output to store and retrieve information.
