Expected outcomes of CS 1110:

(1) Understand OO concepts, as used in Java: classes, subclasses, inheritance, and overriding. This includes an operational model of method calls. Understand the basics of OO design.

(2) Be fluent in the use of procedural statements ---assignments, conditional statements, loops, method calls--- and one-dimensional arrays. Be able to design, code, and test small Java programs that meet requirements expressed in English. This includes a basic understanding of top-down design.

(3) Have knowledge of basic searching and sorting algorithms.
