Contact Info Course Description Books & Software Labs Assignments
This course will be an introduction to computer science and object-oriented programming through the vehicle of programming in the Java language. The course will focus on the skill of programming, to be sure, but will also attempt to introduce the student to the discipline of computer science.
It serves as a stand-alone, rigorous sample of computer science, suitable for math and science majors, and also as the first course in the CS concentration.
Our emphasis in teaching programming in this course centers on the following:
This is a first course in computer programming, and there are no formal pre-requisites for this class. The only expectation of students' computer skills before taking this class is to be comfortable with using email, web browsing, and copying and pasting text. In addition, familiarity with high school-level algebra (e.g. MA 118) is assumed.
