Algorithms, Data Structures and Problem Solving (Using C)


Learning Objectives:


  • To lay strong foundation to the algorithmic problem solving.
  • To develop in learners, the ability to think logically with an algorithmic approach to solve specific computational.
  • To inculcate the ability in the learner to transform the algorithm so developed into the C programming language.
  • To develop the ability to solve problems through stepwise refinement approach.
  • To specify algorithmic solutions to problems that require conditional iterative structures
  • To use the divide and conquer method of problem solving using functions and procedures.
  • To use technique of recursion to solve computationl problems
  • To make use of simple data structures like array and structures to solve specific problems.
