Course Description

This course is the continuation of CS-200, Programming I. This course provides an in-depth study of the principles of object oriented programming, including Classes, Objects, Methods, Arrays, Inheritance, and Polymorphism. Within this framework, the course will cover Sorting and Searching Arrays, Two-Dimensional Arrays, Exception Handling, File Input/Output, and an introduction to Recursion. Emphasis is given to the design of algorithms and program development, involving both numeric computations and string manipulation techniques. A common comprehensive final exam will be given in CS-207.

Submitting Your Program Assignments

Assignment Policy

All assignments must be submitted BEFORE 9am on their given due date or a grade of 0 will be assigned. No late homework assignments will be accepted.

Academic Integrity:

All assignments must be the student’s own work. If you copy homework, you and the student whose homework you copied will receive a zero. If you are caught copying another student’s exam, or allowing someone to copy your exam, you will fail the exam and face further academic discipline.

Absence Policy:

Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes.
