FUN2b

Programming with JavaBlocks

Class Description:

FUN2b will be a conceptual successor to the FUN2a course. FUN2b will begin at about the difficulty level of class 6 or 7 of FUN2. In FUN2a, we introduce Lists/array as the final concept. In FUN2b, it will be the first "advanced" topic we cover, and will move on to loops from there. This will allow the students who are returning from FUN2a to quickly be able to revisit and recall what they learned about Lists, and reinforce its utility.

Prerequisites:

Fun2a, 5/6th grade math proficiency or permission of instructor

Class Features:
