Midterm Exam: Thursday, Oct. 27, in class

Final Exam: Tuesday, Dec. 20, 10-11:50am, WWH 102.

Course description: Students learn how to design algorithms to solve problems and how to translate these algorithms into working computer programs. Experience is acquired through programming projects in the Java programming language. This is intended as a first course for computer science majors, and for students of other scientific disciplines.

Prerequisite: CSCI-UA.0002 or departmental permission. Incoming students are expected to already have some programming experience in some programming language (not necessarily Java, and not necessarily an object-oriented language).
