# Module Learning Outcome Description
MLO1 Take a simple problem statement and analyse, design, implement and test a solution.
MLO2 Explain and apply programming control structures.
MLO3 Explain and apply user-defined functions.
MLO4 Use basic Data structures such as arrays and array lists.
MLO5 Define and use Classes and Objects.
MLO6 Understand and use Inheritance and Polymorphism to solve a problem. Appreciate the benefits of good software design.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named DkIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Assessment Description
The formative assessment will normally take the form of practical lab based tests and a small project. Students will be given a simple problem statement and will be required to analyse, design, code and test a solution to the problem. The assessment criteria will be concerned with the students’ demonstrated understanding of and ability to apply basic programming control structures, user-defined functions classes and objects to solve simple problems and a demonstrated ability to test their solutions.

Workload Type Contact Type Workload Description Frequency Average Weekly Learner Workload Hours
Practical Contact In the practical sessions, the delivery of new material will be integrated with the practical implementation of that material (approximately: 40% delivery, 60% implementation). This flexible mode of teaching allows students to derive maximum benefit from the sessions. Students will work both individually and in groups to enhance their learning. Every Week 3.00 3
