This course, mandatory for all the students, has a twofold objective: on one hand, to introduce to the student to the issues related to computer science from both the “cultural” and the technological perspective. On the other hand, the course aims at teaching the use of computer programming as a way to solve realistic problems.

This course, mandatory for all the students, has a twofold objective: on one hand, to introduce to the student to the issues related to computer science from both the “cultural” and the technological perspective. On the other hand, the course aims at teaching the use of computer programming as a way to solve realistic problems.

The student must acquire two fundamental types of knowledge; the solution of concrete problems through programs implemented using a programming language and to be executed on a computer; the understanding of the quantitative aspects of computer science such as performance, computational power, representation of information, computer architecture. These skills will be applied to the solution of practical problems.

No special prerequisites are expected for the course. Some basic notions of Calculus (e.g., the concept of function) and a minimal level of familiarity with the interaction with a computer.

The exam consists of a written test that aims at assessing the students’ knowledge of the theoretical aspects of the course (through numerical exercises or open-answer questions) and the programming skills (through the writing on paper of a C program that implements the solution of a practical problem). The duration of the written test is 2 hours and it is a closed book test.
The maximum score for the written test is 30 cum laude.
The exam features also an oral discussion of the written test, during which the instructor may request to elaborate some of the topics treated in the course with the objective of assessing the student's skills.
