View Full Version : your 11th & 12th grade c++ project or similar project

Will everyone send their 11th & 12th grade c++ project to sleepyheadtony@hotmail.com . I'm planning to make a site with all these programs so that students can take it as an example when they are writing their projects. I'm making this site with only the .exe's but I would appreciate if people send me the source code as well which won't be published in the site.
I'm a teacher teaching in UAE, Dubai- Our Own English High School.

Could you somehow prove any of what you just said? to me it sounds as if it could be fake, no offense sir but i'd just like a bit of evidence b/c i dont want to be doing other peoples homework.

I doubt it.

Well I can't assure you that I can make the website, I'm a new senior computer science teacher, my students asked me for examples of the kind of projects they should do for the next term.
What kind of evidence do you want cozman? Well those who believe me can send their projects and those who don't their wish. I'm just trying to do the best I can to help these students, because most of the students over here don't even have computers at home and they spend most of their computer practical classes and free periods in the lab trying to work on their projects with not much progress. I want to help these students as much as I can.

If it is code you are looking for, you can allways try www.planet-source-code.com (http://www.planet-source-code.com/xq/ASP/lngWId.3/qx/vb/default.htm#categories) you can find a lot of sourscode there or do a search on google

I don't know what is "11th & 12th grade", since education here in Netherlands is organised in a different way. Can you give me an explanation of what kind of level it is? How much do they already know about C++?

By the way, I doubt if supplying EXE's would really help your students since all exe's could be written in C++. If I for example write a program in Pascal and compile it, it could also be written in C++. Isn't it? So I think it's better to supply them with sources of C++ projects.

>"11th & 12th grade"

11th and 12th grade are the final years of schooling before University (in the States, at least)

What vendor compilers are you using. It's difficult to supply .exe's because you have to purchase a professional edition compiler in order to distribute .exe files. Source code is another story. For the most part, programs written in the Win32 console are not very exciting, yet the console is a productive environment for studying the language definition, therefore most exercises deal with logic and abstraction rather than any sort of graphics related material. If you want graphics than you use an API, for example, MFC or DirectX.

My students have a good knowledge on file handling, pointers, classes. They will be taught stacks and queues and linked list the next term. I'm looking for projects which have real life meaning like library management system, payroll management system, telephone directory management, airline reservation etc. No fancy graphics needed.
I would like programs with stacks and queues and linked lists also because they have to implement these in their programs next term.
We have Turbo C++ and Borland C++ installed in our labs.

Thankyou for the responses.

I'm not quite sure if this is the kind of thing you're looking for, but I made this C program for a science fair project in 12th grade. It's posted both as source code and as an executable on my website:


The source code is not exactly a shining example of good C programming, committing the most hideous abuse of global variables you'll ever see. Such are the tribulations of being completely self-taught; I know better now! Still, the end product is still (I feel) a significant accomplishment and won me quite a few awards in the science fair.

There's also a much shorter Solar System simulation on the same site if you're interested in something shorter.

We made a program called botwars where users coded the brains of the bots in simple code (1 shoot 2 forward) and then set them all in a small enviroment and had them shoot each other till only one was left. Was cool.

errm-ah yes, in UK 11 and 12th grades are the last two years of high school,then college for 2 years, then onto UNI...

Honestly, my EXEs would be too big to send over email, but I personally would be happy to point you to my website to download it, and it is open source.


I just updated the site. Be sure to read EVERYTHING about the project so you know how to handle it.

It is a little DX project I have been doing. I am also making a 3d walkaround right now, and it is almost done except for one little run time error I am having...I will upload it as soon as I can.
