solar system min-max
string and integer parallel arrays,
standard algorithms
euro population
stored values
parallel arrays
count occurrences
find max and find min
substring
assume coder has completed previous projects using the features below

council names
text file : open, read, close
store data into parallel arrays,
use standard algorithms
council voters
File handling
open
a file
read
numbers from a text file
close
a file
standard algorithms
What is the
largest
number of voters?
Count how many councils have more than 100000 voters
council csv data
open csv file,
read and store text and number values into parallel arrays,
close file

fifa task

file handling

open CSV file, 📂
read and store text and number values into parallel arrays,
close file

standard algorithms

Count occurrences ➕
find max ⬆️
re-use code
follow design
fifa demo
open csv file,
read and store text and number values into parallel arrays,
close file
fifa write to file
open csv file,
write values to a file,
close file
3
Count
letter frequency
1

letter frequency

file handling

open CSV file,
read and store text and number values into parallel arrays,
close file

standard algorithms

use count, find max
write selected data to a new file
this task assumes the developer is already familiar with the constructs described below, minimal support
developers should re-use previous code to complete this project

modular calendar

modular version of calendar task does not use files (to provide a simpler project) uses two classes

modular solar

modular design

dataflow
parameter passing
function and procedure

Count
object + record
4
solar object
compare parallel arrays and array of objects
no file handling (focus on data structure)
create class to define record format
create an object array to implement array of records
display individual records (objects) from array
traverse array to display values from all objects
fifa object
File handling
open
a file
read
numbers from a text file
close
a file
Write to a afile
standard algorithms
Find max
Count
data structure
record (object)
array of records (object array)
the project has part developed code
read the code used so far
implement the remaining requirements
council object

data structure

create a class to implement a record structure
create a top level algorithm including an array of records (object array)

file handling

open file
read a file
store values into an array of records
close file

standard algorithms

find max
letter frequency object

data structure

create a class to implement a record structure
create a top level algorithm including an array of records (object array)

file handling

open file
read a file
store values into an array of records
close file
write values from an array of records to file

standard algorithms

display the letter which appears most frequently
display the number of letters which appear with a frequency of more than 5.00
save the consonants into a
new file
including the letter and the frequency
