Prerequisite: Introduction to Programming

 

Course Description

This course introduces object-oriented programming and the Java language and its architecture. Students will learn how to program in Java and use some of its most important APIs. Special importance will be assigned to the object-oriented nature of Java and its use of polymorphism.

Course Outcomes

Upon course completion, students will have demonstrated the ability to do the following:

·         use Java programming language in object-oriented program design

·         understand the Java architecture and use the Java APIs

·         understand and use inheritance and polymorphism as implemented in Java

·         understand and use the exception handling mechanism of Java

·         perform standard input-output operations

·         understand and use GUI components

Required Readings

 

Java: How to Program. 9th ed. by Deitel & Deitel, (required)

Thinking in Java. 6th ed. by Bruce Eckel, Pearson Education. (useful as further reading)

Course Requirements

 

Students are required to attend lectures and labs. Lecture handouts and lab notes will be available after the class. Students are expected to participate in class discussions. In the event of illness or emergency, contact your instructor IN ADVANCE to determine whether special arrangements are possible.

 

Participation: Participation extends beyond mere attendance. You may miss up to two classes without penalty. Each absence beyond the first two will cost you points off of your final grade. The only exceptions to this rule are severe illness (doctor’s note required) and UNYT approved trips/activities. Appropriate documentation for absences beyond the first two is necessary and is to be provided on the class day directly before or after the one you miss. Students are expected to collect materials from the online course page, their classmates or see the instructor during consultation hours.

 

Exams: Two examinations will be taken one midterm and one final. No Student may miss a scheduled exam without receiving permission before the administration of the exam. Make-up exams might be significantly different from the regular tests, and will be administered at a time of instructor own convenience.

 

Project: I will announce projects usually based on the chapters/materials covered in class. Due dates will be specified accordingly. Projects must be submitted as specified to be considered on-time. Late assignments are accepted with the following penalties: -20% if submitted the next day it is due, and -10% for each day late after that. I will accept e-mail submissions.

 

Make-up policy Midterm/Final exam: Only students who miss an exam for university-approved and verifiable reasons will be allowed to take a make-up exam. Even then, except in the most extreme circumstances, no student may miss a scheduled exam without receiving permission before the administration of the exam. Make-up exams might be significantly different in format from the regular tests, and will be administered at a time of my own convenience.

 

Cheating policy: Cheating policy: Exams, assignments, projects and quizzes are subject to the STUDENT HONOUR CODE. The University’s rules on academic dishonesty (e.g. cheating, plagiarism, submitting false information) will be strictly enforced. Please familiarize yourself with the STUDENT HONOUR CODE, or ask me for clarification.

 

Learning Difficulties: If you feel that you have encountered special learning difficulties or serious problems that interfere with your studies, please make an appointment with UNYT Counseling Center. For more information, please contact me and or your academic advisor.
