Not required, but optional prerequisite includes "Introduction to C Programming" course. Students will learn the following aspects of programming using the Java language: Week 1 (Basics): -What is Java, Object-Oriented Programming, Hello World -Comments, Variables, Primitive Data Types, Operators -Primitive Operators, Logic Operators, Increment & Decrement -Strings, User Input, The Math Class Week 2 (Conditionals and Loops, Arrays): -Conditionals, Nested conditionals (if, else if) -Logical...
Learning Java will allow students to develop the basic skills for object-oriented programming and the fundamentals of polymorphism. Students can use this knowledge to take on learning advanced aspects of higher-level languages such as C#, Java, and Python in an accelerated manner.
After each class, students should spend 30-60 minutes going through the day's designated topic in the text, and experiment with writing their own programs on Repl featuring the new language aspect they have learned.
Optional (but extremely useful!) textbook: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1589397584?pf_rd_r=65V01WSNKA80P6T2S9R9&pf_rd_p=edaba0ee-c2fe-4124-9f5d-b31d6b1bfbee Blue Pelican Java ($26-$44 by condition)
Students will be assigned a set of portfolio assignments that will act as their capstone.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Replit will be used as an online code editor during class to demonstrate the programming concepts live to the students in a Google Docs-like format, as students can view the code in real-time and interact with/edit the code as well (when permitted). It is also recommended for programming practice use, as it saves the student the time of installing and setting up an interpreter/compiler and text editor or IDE. An account is required (must be 13+) to use the editor, but the student may choose to solely watch through the screen share if desired. The textbook resource is purely supplemental and is solely a suggestion for learners interested in continuing their knowledge of the topic.
