### Learning Goals

The learning goals for the lecture and lab are the same -- both are meant to work together to accomplish the goals for the course as a whole. They are- Students can read a simple program and correctly identify its behavior
- Students can convert a problem statement into a working program that solves the problem.
- Students understand abstraction and can break down a program into appropriate procedural and object-oriented components
- Students can generate an approximate model of computer memory and describe how an algorithm affects its contents.
- Students can communicate the result of their work and describe an algorithm.
