Topics include: OOP, inheritance, polymorphism, recursion, creating generic structures, sorting, searching, and elementary data structures.|
|Prerequisite||:||CSCI 1320 with a grade of C or better.|
|Textbook||:||No textbook is required. Some students find it helpful to have access to an introductory Java programming book.|
|3 points||preparation||did you prepare for the lab day in advance?|
|2 points||attendance||did you show up on time and stay for the entire lab session?|
|5 points||participation||were you actively engaged in the session without distraction?|
If you know in advance you will have to be absent on a lab day you can receive credit by doing the following:
On Monday homework is due and we introduce the lab day instructions and homework assignment for the week along with lecture topics to support them. Wednesday is lab day. Friday is lecture. This schedule will be modified to accommodate exams as well as adjusting to the beginning and end of a semester.
A homework assignment is considered late if it is not submitted at or before the beginning of the class period on the day it is due. Late homework assignments will receive a 20% point penalty and must be completed within a week or the original due date. Assignments that miss the one week deadline will receive a grade of 0 (unless there are extenuating circumstances).
A primary goal of this course is for each student to become an independent problem-solver. Achieving this goal requires that each student practice solving problems independently. The ideal, therefore, is that each student should make a habit of completing every homework assignment without assistance. There are times, however, when you may become stuck and require assistance. For this reason, the standard regarding independent homework is quite loose:
When working a homework assignment you must not make any sort of electronic copy of work that is not your own. Also, you must type assignments yourself. Failure to abide by these rules is a violation of the academic integrity standards for this course.
If a student turns in work that is clearly a derivative work without violating the above policy, the instructor will discuss the issue with the student. If, subsequently, the same issue arises then the instructor, at his discretion, may assign a grade of zero for the derivative work or require a rewrite of the assignment. This will not be considered a violation of the academic integrity policy but will be in violation of the expectations and requirements that homework assignments be completed independently.
In addition, all full or part-time students are eligible to receive free, confidential, and voluntary counseling services at HSU. Services include consultation, evaluation, counseling, and crisis support services for students facing issues impacting their overall well-being. To obtain any of these services, students may call The Office of Counseling Services at (325) 671-2272, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or begin the intake process by completing our online forms at:https://www.hsutx.edu/intake.
Cases of suspected academic dishonesty will be handled in accordance with university policies outlined in Undergraduate Catalog and in the Student Handbook. The current catalog prescribes that “no student who has violated the Academic Integrity Policy will be allowed to graduate from Hardin-Simmons University with honors.” Penalties will be assigned at the discretion of the instructor and typically range from failure on the assignment to failure of the course. A general rule-of-thumb is that a first offense (if not too major) will result in a zero on the assignment and a second offense will result in an F for the course. The current catalog states that an F earned in this way cannot be replaced by retaking the course.
Accordingly, absence from more than 25 percent of class meetings and/or laboratory sessions scheduled for a course (including absences because of athletic participation) is regarded as excessive, and a grade of F may be assigned as deemed appropriate by the professor.
