Per district policy, 25-45 minutes of homework will be assigned Monday-Thursday and is expected to be completed the next day. Homework will be checked weekly.

Text and Materials:

The textbook we will be using is: Building Java Programs: A Back to Basic Approach. 3rd edition by Reges and Stepp.

We will begin programming with a basic text editor and command-line prompts.  Students must provide their own laptop. Minimum system requirements are 2 GB RAM and 1 GB hard drive space. I support Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. A scientific calculator is also permitted.

A Java JDK is required for this class and can be downloaded from the official Adobe webpage.

Citizenship:

Be prepared! Avoid being disruptive and disrespectful in class. Do not interrupt the learning of others. Keep cell phones off and turned away.
