My teaching experience and interests are broad.
Currently I teach courses on:
Previously I have taught courses on:
I would like to teach courses on:
A continuation of CMPUT 174, revisiting topics of greater depth and complexity. More sophisticated notions such as objects, functional programming, time and memory consumption, and user interface building are explored. Upon completion of this two course sequence, students from any discipline should be able to build programs to solve basic problems in their area, and will be prepared to take more advanced Computing Science courses. Prerequisite: CMPUT 174 or SCI 100. Credit cannot be obtained for CMPUT 175 if credit has been obtained for CMPUT 275, except with permission of the Department.Winter Term 2021
