I have over 90 modules now and plan to create enough for two overlapping courses -- one aimed at students with a strong interest in IT and another for general students. I teach an entire course using these modules, but one could easily select a few to supplement another course.</div></div></div>Thu, 03 Jul 2014 04:05:14 +0000kambagiri926 at http://drupdev.csc.villanova.edu/csta7Binary Representation of Numbers (Basics of CS, Animated)

Analysis of algorithms is discussed from the perspective of I/O complexity and the cache-oblivious model. Related topics include the Longest Common Subsequence problem, recursion, bioinformatics, priority queue, heaps and Gaussian Elemination. This is a very mathematical treatment.</div></div></div>Fri, 04 Jul 2014 01:06:23 +0000kambagiri1059 at http://drupdev.csc.villanova.edu/csta7Color By Numbers

A graph is a mathematical structure usually drawn by connecting dots with lines. They are typically represented in a program using arrays and/or linked lists. Graphs are gentle to introduce, fun to draw and play with, and a wonderful example of the connection between mathematics andcomputer science.</div></div></div>Thu, 03 Jul 2014 18:53:53 +0000kambagiri1017 at http://drupdev.csc.villanova.edu/csta7Number Systems
