College Level Computer Science With Java (Unit 3)
We shall explore Computer Science, first building a computer from basic logic chips, then looking at how languages layout data in memory, how Java creates those structures, culminating with a grand project--a Web Server written in Java.

College Level Computer Science This is Unit 3 of a year-long course will take you from the basics of digital logic through the design of a computer and into Object Oriented Programming using Java. The successful student will be ready to take many Junior/Senior level college courses. The unique aspect of this course is that I emphasize how memory is used by different languages by using diagrams of memory layout—how you can find one piece of information when you know another. (See diagrams in...
The successful student (and my students are always successful) will have a solid understanding of Java and be able to write significant programs. They will understand polymorphism (and love it). They will understand recursion, maybe even tail recursion. They will have a sense of the operating system. They will be prepared to take most sophomore and junior level college classes.
In the first unit, homework will be light, under an hour per class. Once we begin programming in unit two, that will go up to about two hours of programming homework per class hour. There will be occasional short readings in the later units.
Day 1: 32-bit Instruction Sets, Eniac, Strings, StringBuffer, Precompiler, Overloading Operators, C++ User-Definable Macros vs. Java, Expression Evaluator Day 2: "No IFs", Debugging, Polymorphism, Encapsulation, Camel Case, Pre-OOP: FTN, Pascal, C, Lisp, Basic, Spaghetti Code, Shadowing Variables, Read-Eval-Print Loop Day 3: "Hacks", Syntactic Sugar, Test Driven Development, Default Constructors, "=" vs. "==", super methods, Lists, Hashtables Day 4: instanceof, Type Casting (cf: C, C++), Generic Type Declarations, The Troubled Switch Statement, Parallel IFs, 2-D Arrays, C++ Arrays, Introducing Sudoku
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses Java Information.
