An introduction to the process of program design and analysis using the Java programming language for students who have NO prior programming experience. Topics to be covered include basic data types and their operators, I/O, control structures (selection, loops), classes (including methods and fields), arrays, and simple sorting and searching algorithms. Students with prior programming experience are strongly encouraged to take 15-111. If you’ve taken a programming course in a language other than Java and have used functions, loops, and arrays, you should NOT enroll in 15-100 and instead enroll in 15-111. NOTE: students must achieve a C or better in order to use this course to satisfy the pre-requisite for any subsequent Computer Science course.
Cross Listed Courses: None.
