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: My educational philosophy reflects my personal beliefs and how those beliefs will be put into action in the classroom. I believe that the purpose of education is to enlighten a student with the ability to look at life in a new way. CS-219 is a course meant to strengthen your ability to solve problems. I believe that your role will be to come to class prepared by reading the assigned material, practice the problems in the book, and discuss with your fellow students outside of class. My role will be to set achievable goals that will fairly assess your knowledge. I will encourage active participation and that students stay on pace to achieve the learning objectives. An average class, will consist of a quiz covering the previous week's material, a lecture covering new material, and a lab period to discuss the Java programming environment and upcoming programming assignments
Learning Outcomes:Upon completion of this course the student should be able to:
Explain object-oriented programming concepts(this should be a quick review since OOP concepts are covered in CS 151) classes, instrance variables, instance methods, constructors.
Explain advanced object-oriented programming concepts - inheritance, polymorphism.
Demonstrate creativity and problem-solving skills.
Debug and test Java programs.
Write Java programs that use proper style and documentation.
Demonstrate proper use of the object-oriented principles of inheritance and composition.
Given a problem description, the student should be able to decide on appropriate classes in a class hierarchy tree.
Given a description that involves two classes, the student should be able to decide on whether composition or inheritance is more appropriate.
Write Java programs that use:
One-dimensional and two-dimensional arrays
Object-oriented programming concepts - inheritance, polymorphism
GUI programming - event-driven programming, layout managers, swing objects
Course Assessment: Quizzes - short answer, multiple choice, trace the given code, debug the given code.
Programming Assignments - given a problem description, produce a solution in the form of a short program or a method(s).
Participation - in and out of class
Grading: Quizzes worth 50% of grade
Programming projects worth 50% of grade
Active Participation in and out of class is expected, therefore a lack of participation will result in grade point deduction
Late Submission of Course Materials: Homework assigned must be turned in by the beginning of the class period of the date due. The rigors of this course demand that I keep individuals on task and on pace. Late submissions are not authorized.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Be to class on time. Late comers are very disruptive.
On days when programs are due, have program compiled, documentation ready to hand over to instructor, and ready to demonstrate at 0800.
Come to class prepared by reading chapter to be lectured upon and practicing problems.
Class periods are not over until lab time is completed.
Keep computer workstations clean and in good repair.
Computers are only to be used for course related work.
Treat others with respect, especially your instructor.
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: Deliverables:
Project #1 Arrays (Due: 5 Nov 2005)
Project #2 Inheritance (Due: 19 Nov 2005)
Project #3 Exception Handling (Due: 3 Dec 2005)
Project #4 Swing (Due: 10 Dec 2005)
Project #5 Applet (Due: 17 Dec 2005)
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.

I expect students to do their own programming. Utilizing outside programming expertise, i.e. friends, coworkers, consultants, etc... to develop progrmming project solutions will be treated as plagiarism.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

Saturday courses count as two class periods, since we meet only once per week. Because of the rigors of this course and the tight timeline, it is CRITICAL that students attend every class. Unexcused absences will result in grade point reduction. If you expect to be absent, I would encourage you to postpone taking the course for a later semester. I do recognize the needs of adult students and I will excuse legitimate absences, but it will be very difficult to be successful in CS-219 unless you attend all classes.
