Surveys the knowledge and methods of the discipline of psychology. Presents a broad view of this subject and establishes the foundation for further study of the discipline. Emphasis will be placed on applying psychological knowledge to daily situations, and on accessing and assessing information about behavior from a variety of sources. Skills in scientific reasoning and critical thinking will be developed.
This course is an introduction to programming concepts that enforces good programming style and logical thinking. Designed for students with little or no programming language experience, it begins with basic general programming concepts and key concepts of structure. Course then progresses to the intricacies of decision-making, looping, array manipulation, and methods.
Learn to program using .NET Framework with focus on desktop and console applications. Use decision structures, loops, and arrays to solve problems. Apply exception handling and data validation to programs. Use the predefined libraries in .NET Framework to solve problems. Create methods and learn to pass and return arguments. Create classes and use the classes as objects in programming. Use databases to store and retrieve the data from the applications.
Explores how the web works and methods and limitations of delivering content on the web. Examines usability issues such as interface design and structure, and how to accommodate a wide variety of viewports, from smartphones to cinema screen computer monitors. Students will build a four-page portfolio style website using Notepad and Photoshop, and post it to the Internet.
Use Photoshop to make your website attractive and fast loading. Use Illustrator to make logos and graphical elements for both interface design and vector animations. Use Flash for banner and sidebar advertisements.
Construct a foundation of procedural programming concepts and skills requisite for professional object-oriented software development. Use Java, a modern-structured, object-oriented language, to develop your problem-solving and algorithm formulation skills.
Build your problem-solving skills with the fundamental concepts and techniques of object-oriented Java programming in analyzing, designing, and implementing computer programs. Practice problem-solving methods and algorithm development to analyze, design, implement, modify, verify, and document computer programs that solve real-world problems. Develop a good conceptual understanding of data and functional abstraction.
Delve into the fundamental concepts, terminologies, methodologies, and system organizations of database management systems. Develop the theoretical foundation of understanding necessary to design, implement, optimize, query and maintain a database system. Propose, design and develop a database, using a relational database management system to reinforce the theoretical concepts.
Explore methodologies and technologies used in analyzing, designing and developing object-oriented software systems intended to solve real-world problems. Build on the Systems Development Life Cycle model initially presented in the CPW 101 course to model and design systems using tools such as CRC cards and the Unified Modeling Language, which includes class, use case, and sequence diagrams. Discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of object orientation.
Provides demonstrations and practical exercises for using HTML and CSS to create attractive and well-formed web documents.
Advanced database programming using a commercial relational database management system. Perform object creation, manipulation and control using SQL. Write simple and complex queries to solve problems. Create advanced objects like stored procedures and triggers. Explore non-relational systems and business intelligence.
