CPP Computing Practice and Programming

  • CPP.4.CSM Students will evaluate the use of programming languages to solve problems and develop systems

    • CPP.4.CSM.1 Compare and contrast computer programming languages and paradigms (e.g., compiled and interpreted languages, procedural and object-oriented paradigms).

    • CPP.4.CSM.2 Diagram the program execution process.

    • CPP.4.CSM.3 Determine the output of a given sample program without the use of a computer.

  • CPP.5.CSM Students will create, test, and use computer programs to solve problems

    • CPP.5.CSM.1 Implement computing applications using the following software development tools and techniques: branching (if, if-else), declare, define, and reference variables, lists/arrays, looping (for, while, do/while), matrices/two-dimensional arrays, primitive data types, recursion, sequencing.

    • CPP.5.CSM.2 Use various debugging and testing methods (e.g., debugging statements, breakpoints, memory inspection, test cases, unit testing, white box, black box, integration testing) to ensure program correctness.

    • CPP.5.CSM.3 Cite evidence to support or refute the correctness of software solutions.

    • CPP.5.CSM.4 Use the following Application Program Interfaces (API) and libraries to create problem solving computer programs: file input/output; math libraries (e.g., absolute value, square root, quadratic, exponentiation, trigonometry); utilities (e.g., random number generators).
