Unit 2: Dealing with Data and Compound Types
In this unit, we will begin to use variables and constants. We will practice with an array, which is a series of elements of the same type placed in contiguous memory locations. Next, we will learn how to use sequences of characters, which can form strings. We will also discuss how the memory of a computer can be understood as a succession of memory cells that can be accessed through the pointer in order to better control program instructions. This unit also covers data structures, which are groups of data elements grouped together under one name. At the end of the unit, we will study the C++ string class, which is useful when handling and manipulating strings of characters.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 7 hours.
