Description

Students will receive a thorough introduction to the basic syntax and structure of the Java programming language. Students will create text-based Java applications that define variables and arrays and that use if statements, switch/case statements, for loops and while loops. Students will define classes and use those classes to create applications. Students will learn to create new classes based on existing classes using inheritance. Students will create graphical applications and applets. A background in programming or a familiarity with C++ is helpful but not necessary for this class. Students will need a Java compiler. Compilers are available for download.
