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. Prerequisites: Any math course >= MA125, AND a grade of "C" or better in CS151. Suggested prerequisite CS140 3:0:3 (From catalog 2010-2011)
This CS 219 class is being taught as an Individualized Instruction class.

Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, web sites and writings. I will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment tool that measures the degree to which students learn the course's learning outcomes. School policy dictates that a student's performance on the core assessment tool must count for at least 20% of the student's total course grade. School policy also dictates that the core assessment tool must cover at least 75% of a course's learning outcomes.
For this course, the core assessment tool is a final exam. Teachers must create their own final exam and pattern it after the CS219 example exam found in the password-protected my.park ICS faculty area, https://my.park.edu/ICS/Offices/Information_and_Computer_Science/. To avoid collaboration between students in different sections, teachers should not use the example exam's questions verbatim. But teachers are required to cover its same content, and they are strongly encouraged to follow its format closely.
In the final exam, there are two broad categories of questions that we evaluate separately – concepts and problem solving:
Concepts (terminology and concepts that should be memorized): relevant learning outcomes – 1, 6
Multiple-choice and true/false questions that ask the student about CS 219 concepts.
Problem solving (technical skills, critical thinking, and communication):
relevant learning outcomes – 2, 4, 5, 7
Recommended guideline for evaluating the core assessment final exam:
Does not meet expectations
65% to 84%
no exam graded
50% to 74%
Final Exam 20%, tests and quizzes 30%, programming assignments 50%
Late Submission of Course Materials: Contact the instructor about submitting any material late.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Be sure to save copies of your work to personal storage device and/or hard drive copies for backup purposes.
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 students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
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. from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
