CSC226: Discrete Mathematics for Computer Scientists
Propositional logic and predicate calculus. Logic gates and circuits. Methods of proof. Mathematical induction. Recursive definitions and functions. Solving recurrences. Asymptotic growth of functions. Elementary combinatorics and probability. Introduction to graph theory. Binary relations, including posets and equivalence relations.

CSC316: Data Structures and Algorithms
Abstract data types; abstract and implementation-level views of data types. Linear and branching data structures, including stacks, queues, trees, heaps, hash tables, graphs, and others at discretion of instructor. Best, worst, and average case asymptotic time and space complexity as a means of formal analysis of iterative and recursive algorithms.
College of Engineering Summer Program for High School CSC Summer Camp, There is an App for that!
During the camp, students learned about the software lifecycle and MIT’s AppInventor. Students worked in groups to plan, develop, test, and present their own Android application.

Previous Courses at Northeastern University
CS1100: Computer Science and Its Applications
Introduces students to the field of computer science and the patterns of thinking that enable them to become intelligent users of software tools in a problem-solving setting. Examines several important software applications so that students may develop the skills necessary to use computers effectively in their own disciplines.

CS3500: Object-Oriented Design
Presents a comparative approach to object-oriented programming and design. Discusses the concepts of object, class, meta-class, message, method, inheritance, and genericity. Reviews forms of polymorphism in object-oriented languages. Contrasts the use of inheritance and composition as dual techniques for software reuse: forwarding vs. delegation and subclassing vs. subtyping. Fosters a deeper understanding of the principles of object-oriented programming and design including software components, object-oriented design patterns, and the use of graphical design notations such as UML (unified modeling language). Basic concepts in object-oriented design are illustrated with case studies in application frameworks and by writing programs in one or more object-oriented languages.

CS4500: Software Development
Considers software development as a systematic process involving specification, design, documentation, implementation, testing, and maintenance. Examines software process models; methods for software specification; modularity, abstraction, and software reuse; and issues of software quality. Students, possibly working in groups, design, document, implement, test, and modify software projects.
