Sample Schedule

In this course, students will develop their Java programming skills through a combination of interactive, instructor-led lessons, collaboration, and independent work projects. 

Here’s a sample of what a week in the course could look like! Please keep in mind that students will progress at varying paces; this is a general outline of the key material and overall student experience. 

Students will explore Java fundamentals through an introduction to variables, operators, if statements, random, number, and loops in Repl.it. They will practice by utilizing coding fundamentals in basic projects.

As students progress, they will use Java methods and classes while building projects such as Madlibs and Battle Arena.

Next, students will explore two different algorithms, search and sort, along with previous coding concepts. They will create a series of Java coding projects such as Linear Search, Binary Search, Selection Sort, and Insertion Sort. 

Students will utilize the concepts learned to design the final project of the week. With instructor guidance, students will design a Tic Tac Toe game complete with menus, rules, and playability. 

To complete the week, students will finalize their final Tic Tac Toe Java project as well as personal projects.
