language features, includingprimitive data types, variables, methods, and objects. In addition, students
will receive an introduction to object-oriented program design. This will
include a thorough examination of the concept of an object, and a complete
breakdown of Java class architecture.
This course is taught using a combination of required reading,
video lessons, group activities, and individual lab work. Students will begin
each section of the course by reading about the concept being covered and
following along with a video demonstration. Students will then participate in a
problem solving exercise in small groups, followed by a classroom discussion

complete individual lab exercises to demonstrate a practical understanding of
Computers provided for student use.
