Computer Science I: An Introduction page 2 Computer Science 1: Introduction How is COP3502 different than COP 3223? COP 3223 teaches how to program in C Language basics, variable declarations, conditional expressions, if statements, loops, functions, arrays, structures, etc. This will not be covered in this class You will need to freshen up on your C very quickly If you need help, but a good C-language book or find a quality reference online With respect to the C language, we will cover: Pointers, 2D arrays, and linked lists
