Outcomes and Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
To be successful, students should be able to:
1.  Use FORTRAN arithmetic statements, including integer, real, complex,
   character and logical variables and expressions.
2.  Perform FORTRAN arithmetic with intrinsic functions, operations,
   precedence and mixed modes
3.  Use control statements:  DO, IF, WHILE, and CASE.
4.  Use input and output statements to create and access data files.
5.  Use subscripted variables, arrays, with single and multiple
6.  Create and use subprograms which include parameter passing and the
   COMMON statement.
7.  Write computer programs in FORTRAN to solve problems in mathematics
   and science.  Program topics may be drawn from:  algebraic and
   transcendental equation solutions, analytic geometry, statics,
   empirical probability simulation, and computations of numerical
   sequences and series.  

Topics and Scope
Untitled document
1.  The Fortran Language.
    Some history, hierarchy of languages, programming techniques
    (including sequencing, selection, and repetition), internal and
    external documentation.
2.  Arithmetic Statements.
    Integer, real, complex, character, and logical variables and
    expressions, intrinsic functions, operations, precedence, and mixed
3.  Control Statements.
    DO, IF, WHILE, and CASE.
4.  Input and Output.
    Formatted and unformatted I/O (including field descriptors, I, F,
    E, and A.), implied DO and DATA statements, creating and accessing
5.  Subprograms.
    Functions and subroutines (including parameter passing and the
    COMMON statement).
6.  Subscripted Variables.
    Arrays, single and multiple subscripts.
7.  Problem Solving.
    Programs selected from mathematics, science, and engineering
    applications utilizing the techniques of soring, searching,
    simulation, recursion, and iteration.  

Untitled document
1.  The student will have daily outside reading, programming assignments,
   problem set assignments from required text(s), or instructor chosen
   supplementary materials.
2.  Instructional methodology may include, but not limited to: lecture,
   demonstrations, oral recitation, discussion, supervised practice,
   independent study, outside project or other assignments.  

Methods of Evaluation/Basis of Grade.
Writing: Assessment tools that demonstrate writing skill and/or require students to select, organize and explain ideas in writing.Writing
0 - 0%
This is a degree applicable course but assessment tools based on writing are not included because problem solving assessments and skill demonstrations are more appropriate for this course.
Problem solving: Assessment tools, other than exams, that demonstrate competence in computational or non-computational problem solving skills.Problem Solving
50 - 75%
Lab reports, Exams
Skill Demonstrations: All skill-based and physical demonstrations used for assessment purposes including skill performance exams.Skill Demonstrations
10 - 25%
Performance exams
Exams: All forms of formal testing, other than skill performance exams.Exams
5 - 25%
Multiple choice
Other: Includes any assessment tools that do not logically fit into the above categories.Other Category

Representative Textbooks and Materials:
Untitled document
Text(s) required of each student will be selected by the department,
a committee of the department, or the responsible instructor from the
books currently available. Choices in the past have included:
 An Introduction to Fortran 90 for Scientific Computing (2nd) by Ortega
 Saunders Publishing, 1998.
 Introduction to Computing for Engineers,(3rd) by Mayo/Cwiakawa,
 McGraw Hill, 1997.
