Topics
from (not necessarily in the order listed)
Memory organization and memory diagrams. General programming concepts (discussed in Java) including an introduction to generic programming, and exceptions and exception handling. An introduction to object-oriented design and design patterns. Object-oriented programming concepts, including: inheritance, overriding and overloading, inner classes, and polymorphism. Graphics programming (specifically using Swing in Java).
General
  • Assignments are late if they are not received at the beginning of the lecture at which they are due. See the late policy for further information.
  • There will be between 4 and 8 programming assignments, the assignments being given out approximately weekly.
  • Discussion of assignment topic is encouraged but all assignments must be done independently. Copied assignments are considered as “Academic Dishonesty.” Responses to academic dishonesty include assigning a mark of -100% and written notification of the Dean. Again, see the policies link for more details and other policies.
  • Tutorial participation is mandatory.
  • The team project accounts for 15% of your mark in this course, and your participation in the team project affects the grade of your fellow team-mates. Team meetings and other team project activities happen outside of scheduled class times. Please plan accordingly.
  • Some Wednesday classes may be swapped with Thursday tutorials, and some Wednesday classes may covered by someone other than Dr Casperson, depending on Senate scheduling.
