## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

We are interested in: what common data structures exist; how we can program those data structures; how we can represent them efficiently; how we can reason about them (in a formal manner).We are also interested in common algorithms that use data structures, including: searching for data; sorting data.We are interested in: what common data structures exist; how we can program those data structures; how we can represent them efficiently; how we can reason about them (in a formal manner).

###### Principal learning outcomes

After you have completed the introductory programming module (CS118), you will understand the basic structures and concepts underpinning object-oriented programming. This module builds upon these foundations, and allows you to write large programs which use large data sets.
