BIE-PA1 – Programming and Algorithmics 1

Students learn to construct algorithms for solving basic problems and write them in the C language. They understand data types (simple, structured, pointers), expressions, statements, functions, concept of recursion. They learn the basics of algorithm complexity analysis. They know fundamental algorithms for searching, sorting, and manipulating with linked lists.
