Textbooks can be purchased through the MBS bookstore

Additional Resources:

Students may find local libraries and/or the internet useful for finding supplemental resources that would aid in the understanding of the material presented in this course and/or in the completion of the homework assignments.

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: arrays, graphical user interface components, event-driven programming, exception handling, files.  Prerequisites: Any math course ≥ MA 131 and a grade of C or better in CS 151.  Suggested prerequisite: CS 140.  3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

Lecture and reinforcement through the use of homework/programming assignments, a midterm exam, and a final exam will be the primary teaching techniques used in this course.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

·        Explain object-oriented programming concepts

·        Explain advanced object-oriented concepts – inheritance, polymorphism

·        Demonstrate creativity and problem-solving skills

·        Use the NetBeans integrated development environment to enter, run, and debug Java programs

·        Debug and test Java programs

·        Write Java programs that use proper style and documentation

·        Demonstrate proper use of the object-oriented principle of inheritance

·        Demonstrate proper use of the object-oriented principle of composition

·        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:

To successfully complete this course, the student will be required to:

·        Read all assigned material prior to class

·        Complete 11 homework/programming assignments, a midterm exam, and a final exam

Grading:

The final course grade will be determined as follows:

            Programming Assignments (11 @ 5% each)                  55%
            Midterm Exam                                                              20%
            Final Exam                                                                   20%
            Class Participation                                                          5%

Letter grades will be assigned as follows:

            90% - 100%                            A
            80% - 89%                              B
            70% - 79%                              C
            60% - 69%                              D
            Below 60%                              F

Late Submission of Course Materials:

Assignments must be turned in no later than the end of the class period on which they are due.  Normally, if you turn in an assignment later than that, that assignment's score will be reduced by 25% for each successive class period.

Academic Honesty:

Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.  Park University 2004-2005 Undergraduate Catalog Page 101

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.  Park University 2004-2005 Undergraduate Catalog Page 101

Attendance Policy:

Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.

Park University 2004-2005 Undergraduate Catalog Page 100

Failure to attend class will also affect the participation grade.  Excused absences can be granted for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands including temporary duty.  The student is responsible for completing all missed work.
