OPEN LAB: Room T202 in the Technology Building has Microsoft Visual Studio installed on many of the computers. Lab hours depend on the availability of staff and will be posted on Canvas around the second week of class.


This course covers both the C and the C++ programming languages. The C++ language is designed for object oriented programming (OOP) and is an extension of the C language. A lot of the code is exactly the same in both languages, but some areas are very different such as input/output, file access, string manipulation and memory allocation. Objects (OOP) are not covered in C. Discussions and examples are provided for both languages. When we reach the discussion of objects, alternate projects will be provided if you are mostly interested in the C language.

If you are new to programming, I suggest that you choose the C++ discussions and projects. As the course progresses, you can submit your projects either in C or C++ or both. I am happy to look at all of your work, however you will only get credit for one version of each project.


Required Textbook - If you are primarily interested in learning C++, choose the Problem Solving with C++ textbook. If you are primarily interested in learning only the C language, choose the C How to Program textbook. If you are not sure, then choose the C++ textbook.

You only need one textbook, not two and you do NOT need a text with CDs or Access Codes. You may be able to save some money by purchasing an older version of the textbook, but don't go more than one edition. If you purchase an earlier edition, it is your responsibility to coordinate current assignments with the earlier edition.

Be cautious about purchasing 'International' versions from some vendors on the Internet. These versions contain most of the material in the US version but may be missing some text and some of the problems assigned as lab exercises.


Students will study C, a general-purpose programming language, which features brevity of expression, modern control flow and data structures, and a rich set of operators. Students will also study C++, an object oriented programming language that is built using the C language as a base. Students will learn the importance of portability and efficiency through a variety of programming assignments. This course includes application programs and/or systems software.


The class does not have a prerequisite listed, but it has several advisories that you should be aware of. You can still enroll in a class if you do not meet the advisory levels, but you may have a difficult time in the class. The class has three advisories, reading, writing and math.

ADVISORY READING LEVEL 3 - You need to be able to identify the thesis statement in college materials, make complex inferences, summarize and paraphrase information, use a college level vocabulary, etc. This advisory is in place because the textbooks for computer programming typically are not written in Simplified English. It is important to be able to read the textbooks that present complex ideas.

ADVISORY WRITING LEVEL 3 - You need to have the ability write a well-organized five-paragraph essay. Although most lab reports will not contain an essay requirement, you need to be able to write lab reports and participate in the online Discussions at a college level.

ADVISORY MATH 2 - Algebra 1 Skills - You need to be able to work with equations and variables. Some of the lab exercises may involve either complex or imaginary numbers. If you had a difficult time with high school algebra, you may also have a difficult time in a programming class.


CIS054 C/C++ Programming is a three unit college class. Because it is an engineering type course, there is a lot of work. During a regular semester course, you should plan to spend about 9-10 hours per week on each 3-unit class. There may be some weeks you end up spending less time, but there may also be a few weeks that require more time.

The class begins on Monday January 29, 2018 and ends on Friday May 25, 2018. Due dates are listed on Canvas for each assignment. The class is organized into learning modules. There is usually a quiz and one or two lab assignments each module. You can complete the assignments on your own schedule as long as you submit them by their due dates. Lab assignments receive a penalty if submitted late. The late penalty is in addition to any other scores the assignment received. Quizzes must be completed by their due date, usually before the start of the next class module. Quizzes are locked after the 'Available until' date and can no longer be submitted. The due dates for each available quiz or assignment can be seen by clicking the 'Modules' link or the 'Calendar' icon on the left panel of Canvas. As a bonus, a maximum of two quizzes can be made up if the due date is missed. IMPORTANT: The last day of class for this summer session is on Friday May 25, 2018. Finals are due that Friday and no work will be accepted after the end of the class.

Missing or not completing assignments may prevent you from passing the class. If you have vacation plans, or your schedule is full with other important obligations, you may want to consider enrolling in the course at another time.

LAB ASSIGNMENTS: Some of the lab assignments will take longer than other labs. It is expected that each student will make use of the Open-Lab time to complete assignments as needed. Open-Lab hours are made available to students registered in CIS courses. Instructions will be given after the first week on how to use the open lab.

LAB REPORTS: Programs turned in must include screenshots of both the program and the results of testing the program. Programs will be graded on whether they work, quality of output, program readability and appearance, program construction and completeness of testing, and very importantly - documentation.

Unless otherwise indicated, each lab report must include:
1. Your name, class, platform (PC or Mac), date and an assignment ID # if provided
2. A written description of the lab project in English
3. A list of inputs, processing and outputs for each program
4. Test data values, expected results and actual results when the program runs
5. A discussion of what you did to make the program run and any problems you encountered
6. Screenshot(s) of the program execution
7. The listing of the program (code for the program)

EXTRA CREDIT is occasionally available for work above and beyond the minimum requirements for a lab assignment.
An extra credit lab assignment is like a regular assignment, and all of the points earned are counted as extra credit. The extra points are added into the total points received for the class but Canvas shows the assignment is worth 0 points of regular credit. For example if there were two regular assignments at 10 points each and one extra credit assignment and the student received 7 points each, the total percentage would be computed as follows: (7+7+7)/(10+10+0) = 21/20 = 105%
Sometimes a regular assignment may have extra credit for doing more than the minimum required to complete the assignment. For example a 10 point assignment may have the opportunity to earn an extra 3 points for a total of 13 points out of 10. The extra credit part of the assignment MUST be turned in when the assignment is submitted. The extra credit points will not be awarded at a later date even if the assignment is resubmitted. If an assignment is worth 10 points with 3 points extra credit, Canvas initially shows the assignment as 10 points. Extra credit points are added to the total score.


HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS - The C and C++ programming languages are used to develop programs on a variety of operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, Linux and others. You need a computer on which you can install the C or C++ compiler and debugger. Your computer must be connected to the Internet to install the software, view lectures and lab assignments, take the quizzes and tests, submit the lab assignments and participate in class discussions. Although a tablet can be used to view the lecture material and lab assignments, a notebook or desktop computer with the necessary software is required to complete the lab assignments.

INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM - Students need access to a computer that has a C/C++ compiler and an editor or software development system such as Microsoft Visual Studio, Apple Macintosh Xcode, Code::Blocks, NetBeans, DevCpp, Eclipse, etc. If you are using Microsoft Windows, I recommend that you get a free copy of Visual Studio for students from the Microsoft Imagine (formerly Dreamspark) website using your StudentID@stu.sjcc.edu e-mail address. Your studentID will be added for access after you are registered for the class. You should receive an e-mail with information on how to get Microsoft software. More information will be available the first day of class on the Canvas class webpage. You can use any of these operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh OS/X or Linux. Additional information on installing a development system is given during the first Module of the class.

ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE - Many of the handouts and lecture material are provided in the PDF format. Free Adobe Reader Software is available at https://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/   You also need a word processing program such as Microsoft Word, Apple Pages or OpenOffice Writer to complete the lab reports. A spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers or OpenOffice Calc is required to complete one of the lab assignments.


San José City College has many computer labs on campus. Many of the labs used by the CIS and CA departments have the software that you will need to complete the class assignments. Most of the other labs on campus will have Microsoft Office installed, but may not have a software programming development system installed. You need to be an SJCC registered student to use the computers in the Library. You may need to be registered for tutoring to use the LRC labs. Other labs serve different departments on campus. You may need to be registered in one of their classes to use their labs.


San José City College is using Canvas as the online Learning Management System (LMS). Canvas works best with the Google Chrome and Firefox web browsers. The course webpage on Canvas contains class notes, links to videos, PowerPoint slides, class announcements, the course syllabus, test dates, and other information for the course. All assignments must be submitted using Canvas. Make sure you can login to your Canvas account the first day of class. If you are adding the class, your MyWeb enrollment will be reflected at the next Canvas update. Student course enrollment is updated to Canvas three times a day - 6-7AM, 12Noon-1PM and 5-6PM.

Your eight-character Canvas login ID is the same as for MyWeb and is built from the first two letters of your first name, the first two letters of your last name, and the last four digits of your SJCC student ID number. For example, if my name is Dan McElroy and my student ID is 1234567, my Canvas login would be damc4567. When you first get access to Canvas, click the 'Activate/Reset Password' link to set your password for access to all of your classes that are on Canvas.

Additional information can be viewed at http://www.sjeccd.edu/district-services/ITSS/help-desk


All communication concerning the class and any assignment submissions occur through Canvas. All students are required to obtain an e-mail account in addition to their Canvas account. All correspondence through Canvas uses the e-mail address that you have listed with the Admissions and Records office. This includes any messages I send to the class as well as scores for each assignment. It is important that you update your e-mail address if it changes. If you have any questions about the course or need assistance, please contact me by e-mail at any time. You can update your e-mail address by clicking the "CLICK HERE" message on the purple rectangle when you go to the MyWeb page at http://myweb.sjeccd.edu (NOTE the 'E' in sjeccd). If you have an e-mail filter for spam, etc., it is your responsibility to make sure that you are receiving the e-mails that I send you, either from my college address Dan.McElroy@sjcc.edu, or e-mails sent through Canvas.

Students at San José City College are also given a free .edu e-mail address @stu.sjcc.edu
For example, if my student ID was 1234567 and my MyWeb ID was damc4567, my e-mail address would be damc4567@stu.sjcc.edu

The initial password starts with Password (with a capital-P) followed by six digits for the month, day and year of your birth. Example: Password061475

You are not required to use this e-mail address, but you may need it if you want to download a free version of the Microsoft Visual Studio. You do NOT need to use this e-mail address to download Code::Blocks, DevCpp or software from Apple Corp.

Additional information can be viewed at http://www.sjeccd.edu/district-services/ITSS/help-desk


Teachers can take attendance for an on-campus class by seeing who is in the class and participating. Poking your head in the door and looking at the board would not count as being present. For an online class, it is necessary that you not only login to Canvas, but you need to participate by submitting your assignments, quizzes and joining available discussions. Just logging in to Canvas and looking around is not considered participation.

Once you have shown some commitment to the class by submitting quizzes, labs, or homework, I assume that you wish to be in the class. Although it is the student's primary responsibility to drop a class, you may be dropped for non-participation. So, login to Canvas several times a week, keep up with the class and I look forward to seeing your hard work online. It is your responsibility to drop a class if you do not wish to continue.  IMPORTANT!!! You can NOT drop a class using the Canvas class website. If you do not complete the course, and do not officially drop through the Admissions office and are not dropped by the instructor, you will receive a grade based on your completed work. If for any reason you are unable to complete the requirements for the course, you must officially withdraw by the deadline date at Admissions and Records, either in person or using https://myweb.sjeccd.edu

Sunday February 11, 2018 is the last day to withdraw from a fall regular-semester course WITHOUT receiving a "W" on your record. Any classes that you withdraw between 2/12/2018 and 4/26/2018 will show a "W" on your record.

Thursday April 26, 2018 is the last day to drop a fall regular-semester course and receive a "W" on your record. After that date students will receive a letter grade based on your submitted work for the semester.

An 'Incomplete' will be issued only for extenuating justifiable circumstances (medical, military, etc.) and only if the majority of the work in the course has already been completed. An 'Incomplete' will not be considered if the majority of the work has not been completed by the end of the course. Because the grade of 'A' represents 'Distinguished', an 'A' will not be awarded to students who receive an Incomplete and finish their work after the class has officially ended, even if their total score is greater than 90%.

Veterans on the GI Bill, students on financial aid and international students should contact the appropriate office to discuss consequences of dropping or being dropped from a course.


Definition Percent

B=Above Average
D=Minimum Passing

 A = 90%-100%
 B = 80%-89.9%
 C = 70%-79.9%
 D = 60%-69.9%
 F =  0%-59.9%

The lab assignments are an essential part of the class. You cannot pass the class by completing only the quizzes, midterm and final.

NO-NAME and LATE PENALTIES: The lab assignments must have your name, student ID, and exercise name at the top of the document. Late assignments will be accepted with a penalty. Penalties will be applied AFTER the score for your assignment has been computed.

Due dates are listed on Canvas for each assignment. No late assignments will be accepted after the last day of the class. Up to 5 points late penalty can deducted on lab assignments and discussion topics. The late penalty is in addition to any other scores the assignment received. In order to give students time to get added to the class and get the software development system downloaded and working (Visual Studio, Xcode, etc.), the late penalties will be waived (not assessed) for quizzes and lab assignments during the first two weeks of class.

REGRADING ASSIGNMENTS: If you ask for an assignment to be regraded after it has already been graded, one point will be deducted from the new score. For example, an assignment worth 10 points that is regraded will have a maximum score of 9 points.

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY PENALTIES: You are expected to download your own assignments and DO YOUR OWN WORK. I have several ways to help me determine if a student is submitting another person's work. I may not catch every instance of plagiarize work, but I can catch many. The penalties for Academic Dishonesty far exceed the penalties for submitting your work late. I strongly suggest that you do not share your work with other students, or share your disks or flash drives that contain your class work. Sometimes students have loaned their flash drive to another student and the second student accidentally submitted the wrong file. Other times the second student just copied the first student's work and changed the name. If it looks like work was copied, even if accidentally, the penalties will apply. Don't take the chance on messing up your grade. The penalties listed below are for my class. Other instructors may enforce softer or much harsher penalties. For more information concerning the San José City College policy on disciplinary action, refer to the college catalog Chapter 5, Student Complaint Process, Section III-A



Zero points on the assignment and your course grade will be lowered

All or some of your work was created by another student this semester, or a previous semester.

Zero points on the assignment and your course grade will be lowered again.

Second offense.

An 'F' in the class

Third offense.
