CPSC 1301 Computer Science I Course Description: This course includes an overview of computers and programming; problem solving and algorithm development; simple data types; arithmetic and logic operators; selection structures; repetition structures; text files; arrays (one-and-two dimensional); procedural abstraction and software design; modular programming (including sub-programs or the equivalent). Course Objectives: Students will learn basic computer concepts, data representation, and an introduction to programming through Java Students will understand how to develop and use the main Java building blacks: data types, variables, constants, expressions, and arithmetic operators Students will learn how to work with Integrated Development Environments (IDEs), how to develop Java program with an Editor, how to compile a Java program, how to run a Java program, and how to debug Java programs Students will learn the structure of Java classes, constructors, calling methods, and how to use Java predefined classes Students will learn about applets, applet structure, applet execution, and hoe to develop applets Students will learn about flow of control: forming conditions, if , if/else , if/else if , comparing numbers and objects, conditional operator ( ?: ), and switch statement Students will learn how to develop looping control structures: event-controlled loops ( while and do/while statements), count-controlled loops ( for statement), and nested loops Students will learn how to develop user-defined classes: defining a class, instance variables, class methods, constructors, object reference this, graphical objects, creating packages, and Java documentation Required Textbook Title: Java 5 Illuminated Author: Julie Anderson and Herve Franceschi Publisher: Jones and Bartlett ISBN: 0-7637-1667-7 Supplementary materials Software To complete all lessons, assignments, labs, and tests, you will need to access a computer with: Windows 2000/XP, Internet Explorer, and PowerPoint Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) Java IDE (DrJava/BlueJ/Crimson Editor/Borland JBuilder/Eclipse) Java Source Code and Program Files from the textbook CD-ROM
