This includes Java primitive types, flow of control constructs, operators, objects & classes, interfaces, class libraries and packages. Also introduced are Java data structures, exception handling, and text I/O.
COURSE STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Introduction to Java Programming, Comprehensive Version, 10/E by Y. Daniel Liang ISBN-10: 0133761312 • ISBN-13: 9780133761313
©2015 • Prentice Hall (You DON'T NEED MyProgrammingLab access, and you may get the 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th editions of Introduction to Java Programming by Liang)LESSONS: Will be provided online on Catalyst (De Anza's online course management system). You will have access to Catalyst at Noon on April 6: https://catalyst.deanza.edu . You are expected to READ the lessons before the class session that will cover the lesson.
CLASS NOTES: Class notes, assignments and announcements will be posted in Catalyst (https://catalyst.deanza.edu ). You need to check this site at least 2 times per week!
COMPUTER LAB: You may use our computer lab or your own (or another) computer and compiler. If you don't use our computer lab, you need to have a Java compiler in order to do homework assignments (see lesson 1 in Catalyst for where to get one). If you're enrolled in this class, you will automatically have an account in the AT203 BUS/CS Division Open Computer Lab (if you're adding, add online in Admissions office, wait about 20 min. before using the open lab). Bring a flash drive to the Computer Lab to back up your programs or remember to email to yourself.
COURSE OUTLINE (subject to change):
This is a hybrid class. Meet in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:30-3:20 PM. The rest will be presented in Catalyst. The instructor will be online Fridays, 4:30-5:45 PM.
EVALUATION: Prog. Assignments (7) 28% (Each assn. = 4%)
Participation 12% (exercises)
Midterm+ Final 50% (Each test = 25%)
MAKE-UP TESTS: NO MAKE-UP TESTS WILL BE GIVEN! Please notify the instructor ASAP if you know you will be missing a test.
Extra credit problems are assigned with each programming homework assignment, but are due at the end of the quarter. The problems will be from an online program called CodeLab (at www.turingscraft.com , see instructions on Catalyst). You may complete none or some or all of the assigned problems. Only the correct ones will count. (Note: Extra credit will only be counted if the student is receiving less than an A.)
PROGRAMMING HOMEWORK GRADING: Each will be graded as follows:
37 points: Does the program correctly & completely solve the problem?
5 points: Is the listing commented? Is the UML included (if required)? Will I understand what the program is doing? Is the program indented properly?
8 points: ON TIME! (1 point deducted starting day after due date + every other day late--CAN'T TURN IN 3 WEEKS after due date!)
50 points possible (for each assignment)NOTE: NO ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER FRI., June 26, 11:59 PM!
WITHDRAWING FROM CLASS:
I will not automatically drop anyone from class, even if you stop attending classes. If you wish to discontinue the class, you must go on MyPortal (or go the Admissions Office yourself) to officially drop from the class or you may receive a grade of 'F'. There are particular dates you will be allowed to drop (see the college calendar for exact dates).
GRADING BREAKDOWN (adding each score/max-points * weight):
Printer-friendly version will be available on Catalyst.
