Students will learn how to design algorithms to solve problems, and translate these algorithms into working computer programs using the Java programming language. This is a first course for computer science majors, or for students from other scientific disciplines. Students are expected to already have some programming experience (it doesn't have to be in Java). This can be either by taking the prerequisite course CSCI-UA.0002 or the placement exam.
Part 1: Fundamentals of Programming
Part 2: Object oriented programming and design
Part 3: Advanced concepts
Students without programming experience should take the more introductory course -- CSCI.UA.0002. Students with a lot of programming experience may take a test out exam to move directly to CSCI.UA.0102 (Data Structures).
In this course you will be using Java, an object oriented language. You do not need to have any experience specifically with Java, but you need to be familiar with basic computer programming concepts:
"Introduction to Java Programming, Brief Version", 10th edition, by Y. Daniel Liang. This is a required textbook. There is a copy on reserve in Bobst.
There is also a NYU Classes (access it via NYU Home) page for the course. You will need to submit all the assignments through NYU Classes. I will post your grades there.
