    LEARNING OUTCOMES: 
    As a result of taking this course, the student should be able to:
    1. Identify syntax and semantics of C language.
    2. Make use of data structures and program control.
    3. Demonstrate understanding of how to compile and debug C programs.
    4. Demonstrate understanding of arithmetic and memory allocation in simple C programs.
    5. Identify and explain composite data types.

    METHOD OF TEACHING AND LEARNING:
    In congruence with the teaching and learning strategy of the college, the following tools are used:
    • Lectures and class discussions. Laboratory practical sessions and programming problem solving.
    • Office hours held by the instructor to provide further assistance to students.
    • Use of the online content management system (Blackboard CMS) to further facilitate communication, by posting lecture notes, assignment instruction, announcements, and online submission.
