CITM 207 - Computer-Enabled Problem Solving
Course DescriptionThe course covers the basic data representation and processing constructs necessary to problem solving using computers. This includes the development of algorithmic solutions to data processing problem through the use of workflow concepts such as sequence, selection, and iteration. In addition, the course address select fundamental problem solving strategies such as the decomposition of data processing problems into multiple tasks whose functions are coordinated within a specified workflow. Computer simulation and/or implementation tools will be used to provide hands on application of covered concepts using business problem solving examples.

Online DeliveryThis course is offered in an online, asynchronous format except for its final exam, which is held on campus.
Asynchronous learning means that you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage with the course material through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Learning will be based on weekly module content and activities you can work through independently. Note: You will have deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. Details will be included in your course outline, which will be available on the first day of classes.
On-campus exam requirement: Your final exam will be written in person at the Toronto Metropolitan University campus. If you live more than 100 km from the TMU campus, you may arrange to write your exam off campus using an approved off-campus invigilation service. Details on your exam date and how to arrange off-campus invigilation can be found on the Exams for Online Courses webpage.
