Emphasis is placed on translating written
problem descriptions into robust software solutions. Topics covered include
Java program structure, algorithmic problem solving and modularization,
I/O statements, control constructs, looping techniques, class libraries,
user defined classes and methods, arrays, and
(prereq: none) (3-2-4)
My job as your instructor is to make it as easy as possible for you to learn the material covered in this course. Please ask questions in and out of class. Dr. Taylor
On successful completion of this course, the student will:
- Design and document an algorithmic solution for a given problem statement
- Use if/if-else/switch statements to control program flow in algorithmic solutions
- Select the appropriate selection control statement for a given task
- Create and interpret complex expressions that use relational and boolean operators
- Use while/do-while/for statements to control repetition in algorithmic solutions
- Select the appropriate repetition control statement for a given task
- Translate UML class diagrams into Java code
- Design and implement simple classes
- Design and implement class and object methods
- Use existing Java class libraries
- Design and implement simple Java programs
- Declare and use collections of primitive and object data using arrays
- Declare and use collections of object data using
The above course description and goals were taken from the official course description.

Quizzes will be given nearly every week at the beginning of lab. The lowest quiz score will be dropped. No make-up quizzes will be given.
Unless stated otherwise, all laboratory assignments will be completed individually.
Please send me a calendar invite in Outlook if you would like to meet during my office hours. We can meet via a Teams Meeting.
