 Week 1
Lesson 1
Arrays give us the ability to store a lot more data in one location. We can create lists of grades, lists of names, etc. AND with for loops, we can cycle through each element with ease!
 Week 2
Lesson 2
Multi-Dimensional Arrays
Now that we have mastered working with Arrays, let's create something that can store more complex data like what you might see in a spreadsheet or a grid.
 Week 3
Lesson 3
Multi-Dimensional Arrays, Part 2
The same way we would use loops to cycle through (or 'process') single dimension arrays, we can do the same thing with multi-dimensional arrays.
 Week 4
Lesson 4
Object Oriented Programming - Creating Classes
Many programming languages focus on the idea of Object Oriented Programming (OOP), where the focus is creating 'objects' that can solve problems, or be used in solving problems. We start looking at how Java handles creating these objects.
 Week 5
Lesson 5
OOP - Constructors, Destructors, Inheritance, Polymorphism
More about Object Oriented Programming. Specifically setting objects to have constructors and destructors (for setup and cleanup) and how to start giving objects functionality - the ability to do things.
 Week 6
Lesson 6
OOP and more!
Finishing up the discussion of OOP, we jump back and relate the power of objects to other ways to store data... while planning for the next big project.
 Week 7
Lesson 7
Final Project
Let's put ALL our new-found knowledge of Java programming and smash it all into one... big... project!
Course Outcomes 
•	Students will become proficient and comfortable with problem-solving with respect to programming.
•	Students will understand the basic methodologies of programming in both the procedural and object oriented environments.
•	Students will gain understanding on the syntax and constructs of the Java programming language.
•	Students will be able to explain the concept of objects/classes and be able to represent real world events in class form.
•	Students will become proficient in the following programming constructs: expressions, decisions, iteration, functions, structures, and strings.
I have a degree in computer science and have been teaching all levels of programming and software engineering at the college level for 20 years and have worked in the industry for the same amount of time. This particular course (Introduction to Programming) has always been my favorite to teach. My goal is to give the students an experience that will prepare them to be successful in a Computer Science based college program.

I love programming because there are multiple ways to solve a problem. Computers only do what you tell them to do - whether you realize you're telling them to do something or not! 
Homework Offered
Weekly programming assignments will be posted at the end of each class. Students will be expected to work on the assignment and post it before the next class. The instructor will be available throughout the week to help along the way!
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
This is a very hands-on course. Students will be asked to try out the Java programming principles AS they are being taught in the class. After each class a lab project will be assigned that guides the student through creating complete and proper running programs that will be submitted to the instructor before the next class. The instructor will interact with the students throughout the week to guide them through these labs as they share, review and reassess each other's code.
Grades Offered
Students will be provided with weekly PowerPoint decks that will contain all the information they need.

I love to teach! I love the look on a student's face when they "get it" or when they realize how much they love (or are allowed to enjoy) what they are learning!

I have been teaching Mathematics, Computer Science (programming) and Theatre...
