SCHEDULE

This page lists the dates of all the lectures with links to slides and examples from the lecture (if any). Readings are in the book Java: An Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming by Walter Savitch. To get the most out of lectures, skim the reading beforehand (or at least look at the pictures!). You may also want to print out the slides before lecture so you can write and highlight on them during lecture. After the lecture, go back and read the pages carefully and do the book exercises. (These exercises are for your practice and not to be turned in or graded. It's still a good idea to do them to make sure you understand the material.)
