Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: PROGRAMMAZIONE PER BIOINFORMATICA
------------------------
The aim of this course is to introduce the students to structured programming by using the C programming language. At the end of the course, students will be able to write and understand simple C programs.
------------------------
MM: LABORATORIO DI PROGRAMMAZIONE I
------------------------
The aim of this module is to let students develop code in structured programming style, by using the C programming language. At the end of the module, students will be able to use tools for editing and compilation, in order to implement simple C programs.

Assessment methods and criteria

The exam is shared between the modules of theory and laboratory. The global exam is split in two parts, at the end of the first and second term. Both parts consist in writing, on paper, small C programs, about the concepts introduce in the relative term. The evaluation will be up to 30 points and will be based on the syntactical and semantic correctness of the code. The final mark will be the average of both parts.
