    PRESENTAZIONE

    The course introduces the student to modern information and communication systems for the processing and management of the information. The course is divided in two parts. The first introductory part focuses on providing the fundamental notions of computer architectures, operating systems, and computer networks. The second part provides the computer programming bases, with emphasis to scientific reasoning and computational thinking.

    OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

    OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

    The course aims at introducing the student in the field of modern electronic methods for the management of information, related communications and basic methods of calculation.The course follows two distinct strands; the first concerns the study of the architecture of computing systems, the representation of information within them, the organization and operation of networks and of the Internet;the second teaches on the fundamentals of programming.

    OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

    The course is divided in two parts.

    The first part of the course describes the computer hardware architecture and the computer operating system. In this first part, the students will acquire the fundamental knowledge of computer hardware architecture, computer operating system and computer network architectures and protocols.

    The second part of the course provides the computer programming bases, with emphasis to scientific reasoning and computational thinking. In the second part of the course students will acquire the ability to face problems of increasing complexity autonomously.  Students will acquire

    • the computational thinking and programming principles;
    • the knowledge of the fundamental concepts of imperative programming;
    • the principles of designing, implementing, and validating a small sequential program based on the informal specifications provided by the user;
    • the ability to produce correct and comprehensible code;
    • the ability to understand, use, debug, and modify computer code.

    PREREQUISITI

    None.

    MODALITA' DIDATTICHE

    The course will consist of

    • Classroom lessons;
    • Guided laboratories;
    • Homework;

    Given the contents and the structure of the course, attending classes and laboratories is strongly encouraged and suggested.
