IN1000 – Introduction to Object-oriented Programming
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
Changes in the course due to coronavirus
Autumn 2020 the exams of most courses at the MN Faculty will be conducted as digital home exams or oral exams, using the normal grading scale. The semester page for your course will be updated with any changes in the form of examination.
This course is an introduction to and gives a good base for further studies within computational science, but it´s also suited for those who just wish to understand what programming is. The course doesn´t presuppose any knowledge of programming. It´ll be given a beginners introduction to Python and how to develop algorithms, included the use of lists, files and communication with user.
Particular emphasis is placed on object-oriented programming.
After taking IN1000, you´ll:
- understand the principles of object-oriented programming and can use these to write simpler object-oriented programs
- know how to program in the Python programming language and can use this to solve minor problems using choices, loops, functions, lists, classes and objects
- know how to write clear and readable programs
- be able to put yourself in someone else´s programs, find any errors in them and modify them
