Problem solving through Programming In C

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur and NPTEL via Swayam


This course is aimed at enabling the students to
  • Formulate simple algorithms for arithmetic and logical problems
  • Translate the algorithms to programs (in C language)
  • Test and execute the programs and correct syntax and logical errors
  • Implement conditional branching, iteration and recursion
  • Decompose a problem into functions and synthesize a complete program using divide and conquer approach
  • Use arrays, pointers and structures to formulate algorithms and programs
  • Apply programming to solve matrix addition and multiplication problems and searching and sorting problems
  • Apply programming to solve simple numerical method problems, namely rot finding of function, differentiation of function and simple integration
