Workshop 2: C++ in AP CS AB June 22-23, 1998



Information

Two 2-day AP CS workshops will be held at Duke University. Participants may register for one or both workshops. The workshops will consist of lectures and lab exercises. The labs will use PCs running Windows. We are investigating offering CEU credit.

Workshop 1: C++ in AP CS A

Introduction to C++ for teachers with programming experience in Pascal at the A level and no knowledge of C++. This workshop will prepare the teacher for teaching the AP CS A course in C++. Topics include introduction to C++, using classes early, animation and visualization, the AP classes (apvector, apstring, and apmatrix), and the Large Integer Case Study in C++.

Workshop 2: C++ in AP CS AB

C++ for teachers familiar with the current AP CS AB course in Pascal, and with some knowledge of C++ (at the A level or from Workshop 1). This workshop will prepare the teacher for teaching the AP CS AB course in C++. Topics include data structures, AP classes (apstack and apqueue), templated classes and functions, animation and visualization, the Large Integer Case Study in C++, and using C++ to your advantage in teaching more advanced topics.
