■ flow control statements (do-while, while, for, if-else);
■ standard input and output library functions;
■ describe the syntax of the C programming language;
■ find and correct errors in student written code, and example code;
■ design, write, compile and run simple programs using a commercial Integrated Development Environment.
Minimum Requirement for Award of Credits
