This 4 credits class is an introduction to procedural and object-oriented programming methodology. Topics include program structure, conditional and iterative programming, procedures, arrays and records, object classes, encapsulation, information hiding, inheritance, polymorphism, file I/O, and exceptions. Software debugging and testing techniques are emphasized.
The class is a hands on programming class, so the class includes labs where you will receive you direct hands-on experience in programming and you will require access to a computer and a Java development environment.
Prerequisites: Level 4 or higher on the mathplacement exam.

Grades will be based on homework and exams according to the following formula:
- Homework, project, quizzes and labs -- 25%
- Midterm exams (2) -- 40%
- Final exam -- 35%
Do not miss the exam. Make-up exams will be given only in extenuating circumstances (e.g., doctor's note stating that you were ill and unfit to take the exam). Students who miss an exam for a valid reason may need to take a make-up exam; specific arrangements will be made on a case-by-case basis.
The P/NC grading option is not available for this course.
The assignments and grades are posted on Blackboard: http://blackboard.stonybrook.edu.
