lesson4 Basic rules of programming (Four arithmetic operations, Basic data I/O)
lesson5 Basic exercise (Basic numerical processing)
lesson6 Fundamental processing: Part1 Iteration
lesson7 Fundamental processing: Part2 Conditional branch
lesson8 Basic exercise (Basic mathematical problems)
lesson9 Variable and its definition
lesson10 Data I/O and file processing
lesson11 Array: Part 1
lesson12 Array: Part 2
lesson13 Practical exercise (Engineering application: Part 1)
lesson14 Sub program and function
lesson15 Practical exercise (Engineering application: Part 2)

There is a term-end examination in 16th class.
Programming assignment report will be given in each lesson. 
Handouts will be distributed in classes. They will also be available on the web site (http://home.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/nakashima/lec/). A reference book of FORTRAN language is required as a dictionary. 
PC or AV used in
Handout, Slideshow, computer terminal of educational computing system of Faculty of Engineering.  
Suggestions on
Preparation and
For lessons 1 and 2, it is recommended to review operations of a computer learned in the basic class of information technology.
For lessons 3 to 15, preparation and review of each lesson are encouraged. Basic and practical exercises are also available in the handout.
Refer to electronic files of handout and slideshow for each lesson, as necessary. The data will be uploaded on the web site before the lesson. 
Requirements You should make sure to bring your student card, which is required to enter the lecture room 101 (Computer room).
Password for the educational computing system of Faculty of Engineering will be provided at the first lesson. 
Grading Method Up to 60 points for the programming assignment reports, and up to 40 points for the term-end examination. 
Message All exercise will be conducted at the lecture room 101 (Computer room) of faculty of engineering.
Details about Vehicle & Environmental Systems Program (VESP) are available on their web sites.
