CS 1323-020: Introduction to Computer Programming
Introduction to the design and implementation of computer software
with an emphasis on abstraction and program organization.
- Textbook: Java Programming: From the Ground Up (Bravaco and
Simonson; McGraw-Hill, 1st edition, ISBN-13: 978-0073523354)
- An electronic copy is available from CourseSmart. This electronic version is less expensive than buying the hardcopy of the text book, but it is a rental that lasts only 180 days. [also, we cannot anticipate right now whether this same book will be used for the next course in the Java sequence]
- We are using Tophat as an
interactive classroom tool during the semester. This tool
interfaces to your laptop and your cell phone (smart or not).
All students are required to sign up for the Tophat service
($20 for the semester for all classes; or $38 for 5 years for all
classes). [while Tophat is being used for the next Java course
this semester, there are no guarantees that it will be
used in the future]
- We are also using Turing's Craft for on-line programming exercises. The cost will
be $25 for the semester. Registration and payment details are
discussed on the news page for this course on D2L.
