Course description

Intermediate programming in a high-level language and introduction to computer science. Topics include program structure and organization, object-oriented programming (classes, objects, types, sub-typing), graphical user interfaces, algorithm analysis (asymptotic complexity, big O notation), recursion, data structures (lists, trees, stacks, queues, heaps, search trees, hash tables, graphs), simple graph algorithms. Java is the principal programming language.

Outcome 1: Be fluent in the use of recursion and object-oriented programming concepts (e.g. classes, objects, inheritance, and interfaces).

Outcome 2: Be able to design and implement nontrivial Java programs (roughly 1000 lines of code), starting from an English language specification.

Outcome 3: Be able to design graphical user interfaces (GUIs).

Outcome 4: Understand asymptotic complexity of algorithms and be able to analyze programs to determine their running times.

Outcome 5: Understand basic data structures taught in the course and be able to implement them and use them in programs.

Prerequisites

CS 1110 or equivalent course in Java or C++.
