Course Description: This course continues the development of the programming and problem solving skills introduced in CS 151. Programming concepts will be put into practice by using Java for programming projects. Students will learn about object-oriented programming and two of its key components - inheritance and polymorphism. Additionally, students will learn about these topics: graphical user interface components, event driven programming, exception handling, files. Prerequisites: Any math course ? MA131, a grade of ‘C' or better in CS151. Suggested Prerequisite: CS140. 3:0:3
Educational Philosophy: To provide the students with an in-depth understanding of Graphical User Interface (GUI) design. To learn a GUI application tool that allows them to develop structured GUI applications. Course material will be presented through lectures, class discussions, videos, and lab exercises. Students will be assigned projects to enforce the learning objectives of topics presented. Students must read all chapters prior to each scheduled class meeting. Students are expected to be well-prepared to discuss examples and assignments provided at the end of each chapter or handed out by the instructor. Discussion of these examples and assignments will be part of the basis of the class participation grade. Students will also complete five programming assignments outside of class.
Learning Outcomes:1. Explain object-oriented programming concepts (this should be a quick review since OOP concepts are covered in CS 151) - classes, instance variables, instance methods, constructors.
2. Explain advanced object-oriented programming concepts - inheritance, polymorphism.
3. Demonstrate creativity and problem-solving skills.
4. Use the JBuilder integrated development environment to enter, run, and debug Java programs.
5. Debug and test Java programs.
6. Write Java programs that use proper style and documentation.
7. Demonstrate proper use of the object-oriented principle of inheritance.
• Given a problem description, the student should be able to decide on appropriate classes in a class hierarchy tree.
8. Demonstrate proper use of the object-oriented principle of composition.
• Given a description that involves two classes, the student should be able to decide on whether composition or inheritance is more appropriate.
9. Write Java programs that use:
• One-dimensional and two-dimensional arrays
• Object-oriented programming concepts - inheritance, polymorphism
• Exception handling
• File I/O
• GUI programming - event-driven programming, layout managers, swing objects
Course Assessment: Attendance 10%
Final Exam 20%
Grading: Exams 1, 2, & 3 are 100 points each.
Homework and Attendance are 100 points.
100-90 = A (4.0 honor points)
89-80 = B (3.0 honor points)
79-70 = C (2.0 honor points)
69-60 = D (1.0 honor point)
Below 60 = F (no honor points)
Late Submission of Course Materials: a. Late Homework: Late homework or assignments will take a 10 point deduction for each day (not class) missed. Coordination with me prior to an absence for turn in or having another student turn in your work can be authorized with advance notice.
b. Make-up Examinations: Make-up examinations will only be given without a valid excused absence and approved by the instructor. All make-up tests must be scheduled before the next class session or a zero will be given for the exam. If a make-up test is granted, I will schedule a day for taking the missed exam.
c. Incompletes: As a rule, incomplete grades will not be given. Incomplete grades will not be given for student laziness (i.e. work not in on time; missing exams; student missing final...etc.) Exceptions to the rule do exist, however: If a death in the student's immediate family (spouse, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, or uncle) affects the overall performance of the student in the course or if the student missies a significant portion of the class due to their hospitalization, the student may be allowed to petition for an incomplete and make up the work prior to 16 October 2005. The instructor retains the right to veto any such petition, or grant an incomplete in other unforeseen circumstances.
d. Withdraws: The enrollment status of the student in this course is solely the responsibility of the student. If you wish to change your status in this course, be sure that you file the appropriate paperwork with the registrar before the appropriate deadlines. If you wish to drop, do not just stop coming to class!!!!
Get to the Campus Center Director and file a withdrawal slip. I will continue to consider you part of this
Class until notified otherwise by the Campus Center Director.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: 1. I expect you to read the syllabus and to make yourself aware of all requirements and deadlines associated with this class.
2. Be prepared for class. This means that you have read the assigned readings and are prepared to discuss them. This course will consist of class discussion, small group discussion, and lecture. You are expected to take part in the discussions and group work. Also, every aspect of the assigned readings will not always be reviewed in class, but examinations will be from both assigned readings and class discussions. 3. I am easygoing, but I will not tolerate unnecessary disruptions. You must respect other students' right to learn.
