UNIT 03 - Introduction to Programming

EXPECTATIONS:

We'll divide ourselves into three groups:

Rookies: with little or no programming experience. Skills to develop are:

  • Loops & Branches
    • Demonstrate ability to use for loops and if statements
  • Create several user defined functions
  • Use Existing App Lab supplied functions
  • Use ONE of the possible interactive features such as drop-down boxes, radio buttons and check boxes interactively with your user
  • Learn to use the App Lab debugger
  • Begin Pong(?)

JV's

  • Loops & Branches
    • Demonstrate ability to use for loops, while loops, if statements, if/else statements
  • Create User Defined Functions
    • Explore the possibility of adding a catch-all "Error_Trap" function to you applab application
  • Use Existing App Lab supplied function
  • Demonstrate Proficiency in App Lab debugger
  • Use "OnEvent" functions
  • Use several interactive features such as drop-down boxes, radio buttons and check boxes interactively with your user
  • Manipulate objects on the screen in App Lab (pong!)

Senseis: Folks who have taken AP Computer Science "A" (Java) or have lots of programming experience

  • Loops & Branches
  • Demonstrate ability to use for loops, while loops, if statements, if/else statements, switch statement
  • Create User Defined Functions

LEARNING GOALS -- The purpose of this unit is to get a firm understanding of where our current programming skills are and stttttttrrrreeetttttchhhhhh them a bit during this unit as outlined above.
