Instructions:

• You must submit two separate copies (one Word file and one PDF file) using the Assignment Template on

Blackboard via the allocated folder. These files must not be in compressed format.

• It is your responsibility to check and make sure that you have uploaded both the correct files.

• Zero mark will be given if you try to bypass the SafeAssign (e.g. misspell words, remove spaces between

words, hide characters, use different character sets, convert text into image or languages other than English

or any kind of manipulation).

• Email submission will not be accepted.

• You are advised to make your work clear and well-presented. This includes filling your information on the

cover page.

• You must use this template, failing which will result in zero mark.

• You MUST show all your work, and text must not be converted into an image, unless specified otherwise by

the question.

• Late submission will result in ZERO mark.

• The work should be your own, copying from students or other resources will result in ZERO mark.

• Use Times New Roman font for all your answers.

Description and Instructions

1. Objectives

The main objective of this project is to get familiar with designing and

developing an algorithmic problem solution using data structures concepts.

2. Introduction

On this project each group of students will solve a problem to assess their

understanding of data structure. Students will work in groups of 2-3 students

then collect their work in one report to be submitted with the other project

materials.

3. Required work

Choose an algorithmic problem related to the concepts of data structures (one

that has been covered in class) and write a problem statement on it.

Examples of projects topics:

Problem Name

1. Train Schedule Manager

2. Student Course Scheduler

3. Social Network Connections

4. Shopping Cart

5. Flight Reservation System

6. Shortest Path Finder

7. Music Streaming Playlist
