3 About the course The second course for majors in computer science. A rigorous treatment of object- oriented concepts using Java as an example language. Development of sound programming and design skills, problem solving and modeling of real world problems from science, engineering, and economics using the object-oriented paradigm.

4 Prerequisites COMS W1004 or AP Computer Science with a grade of 4 or 5 You should be familiar with basic Java concepts and programming principles You should be able to write a 150-line program with 4-5 classes

5 Course homepage Please check the course homepage frequently for important announcements and changes to the reading assignments
