A thorough introduction to commonly used computer applications, covering word processing, spreadsheets, data storage and retrieval, and presentation software. Students will learn the vocabulary of computing, the concepts of computing and problem solving, and how computer applications can be applied to a wide range of problems.
INTRODUCTION TO JAVA
This course teaches the essentials of object-oriented programming in Java. Students will learn to formulate algorithms, solve problems, and implement those solutions with a Java program that employs objects and classes. Students will be introduced to object-oriented design, class construction, methods and message passing, arrays, string processing, and file processing.
The course offers a formal approach to the mathematics of Computer Science, including set theory, methods of proof, propositional logic, discrete probability, sequences, recurrence relations, introduction to graphs, and algorithmic analysis.
This course teaches more advanced topics in object-oriented program design and the Java programming language. Coverage includes multi-dimensional arrays, methods, error handling, strings, regular expressions, encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, generic types, program debugging and testing, database and file processing, event-handling, and graphical user interfaces.
This course covers issues of data structures, professional software development methodologies including software patterns, and advanced object-oriented techniques. Topics include lists, queues, stacks, and trees. Complex data structures and object-oriented design techniques, including inheritance and polymorphism, are applied to develop larger projects.
