Computer Science I: COSC 220 (3)

Introduction to object-oriented programming. Recursion—basic algorithms, array searching and sorting. Dynamic storage allocation—pointer types, linked lists and binary search trees as abstract data types. Classes—objects, abstract classes, inheritance and polymorphism, linked lists and binary trees as classes.
