Introduction to Programming with Java, Part 1 FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE
A college-prep introductory course in computer programming (Part 1 of a 3 course sequence), as a FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE course.
Course Objective This course is an introduction to the problem-solving and programming methodologies that are fundamental to the study of computer science. Students gain considerable experience with fundamental language constructs and types, such as expressions, decisions, iteration, functions, structures, and strings. This course (and those to follow in the sequence) is modeled after a college-level class taught by this instructor but is accessible to students who have never programmed...
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 OfferedEach week students will have programming projects to design and complete. These programs will be shared with the other class members, compared and discussed. Weekly discussions will also be created around topics related to programming.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedThis is a very hands-on course. Students will be asked to try out the Java programming principles AS they are being taught in the videos. 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 be available to guide the student through these labs throughout the week.
Students will be provided with weekly PowerPoint decks that will contain all the information they need. We will be using a free online compiler.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

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...
