College Level Computer Science With Java (Unit 2)

Bil Lewis
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(46)
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.

Class experience

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.
Homework Offered
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.
