Please use the discussion board for your assignments to ask questions.


Data Structures is a fundamental class for all IT or CS program - here are Links to Schools Offering COP3530 (these can be a handy reference)


Many of the students taking this class will go on to be developers. Be good ones - read this blog post on good habits and use them - Link

COP3530 - Course Outcomes


1. Describe both complex and simple data structures.
2. Select the correct data structure and algorithm to solve specific problems.
3. Implement data structures and algorithms in computer code.
4. Analyze the performance of algorithms and data structures.

How the Class Works


This class has 15 weekly assignments that you must complete and submit. Each assignment has links to corresponding lectures. The assignments also contain a quiz to be used for self-assessment. If you do not understand a quiz question - you need to ask about it, even thought the answers are available (including explanations) - you need to understand the answers.
