Programming Today - Blk 2 & 3
Our final project for the Java unit will be the Gym Membership.
This is a more challenging assignment that requires the us of if/else statements and Accessor methods that return two fields at once.
Project is due: Thursday, Jan 29
on Thursday we will have a quiz based on the The Dog Class
I will copy & paste the code for the Dog Class into the quiz and then make 20 coding errors.
Your job will be to identify the 20 errors and correct them. This quiz will be worth 40 points.
1 point for identifying the error and 1 point for correcting it.
Study the Dog Class and you should be fine.
Last week, we began to look at The Ticket Machine lab. You were asked to complete the starting questions as a way to familiarize yourself with the machine and it's code.
This week we will complete two assignments that you can find at the bottom of the Ticket Machine page.
What does it mean when we see these terms at the start of a Java method?
example: public void setName (String newName)
By now you should have finished the Dog class and hopefully are either finished or almost finished the Student Class.
I want you to have another experience looking at the code, constructors, and methods however so I would like you to create a Cellphone class based on the example from the Dog and Student class.
Take the student class you have completed and modify it to meet all the criteria required for the cellphone class.
Don't forget to work with a partner! COLLABORATE - share your ideas!

Last week we began working on our Pong game
This week we will continue this game.
If you find this very challenging, click here to download some sample code to help get you going.
If you find this very easy, check out this page for a Pong remix challenge
If you finish quickly, consider how you can make your game original. Try making custom sprites, adding new elements into the game such as additional balls or levels. Consider adding music or different scoring systems.
The limit is only your imagination.
Scratch is a fun drag & drop game design tool.
