This page provides access to PowerPoint presentations to accompany C++ An Introduction to Computing, (2nd Ed., Prentice Hall, 1997) by Joel Adams, Sanford Leestma, and Larry Nyhoff. The presentations were prepared using PowerPoint from MS-Office '97.
There are a total of 42 presentations (one per lecture) spread over 14 weeks of a course. The presentations follow the syllabus we use in our CS-1 course here at Calvin College, but you should feel free to reorganize them however you wish. I have provided the actual PowerPoint source files so that you can customize them to your particular presentation style.
I personally like to make these available to my students before class by printing handouts of them using the Handouts (6 slides per page) format. On an 8.5-by-11" piece of paper, this format three slides per pages down the left-hand column, and prints a right-hand column of blank lines beside each slide in which students can take notes.
The presentations may be downloaded in either of two formats:
I am always open to suggestions on alternative ways to teach a topic, so if you have particular examples that work well, let me know and they can perhaps be incorporated into a subsequent version. Enjoy!
