This unit extends the concepts introduced during the prerequisite unit. It extends the study of object-oriented programming by introducing the major data structures used in programming - stacks and queues, collections (sets, bags, lists, trees, hash tables and graphs), and a review of data structures and algorithms provided by system libraries. Other topics include developing algorithms, algorithm optimisation, and recursion, searching and sorting. Upon completion of this unit, students will have an understanding of classes, libraries and algorithms and their role in software development, and be able to implement them.
Examination 60%, two assignments (15% each) 30%, weekly practical tasks 10%
