FUN3b

Programming with Processing

Class Description:

While FUN3a was focused more on techniques, syntax, and grammar, FUN3b will focus on application and the utility of the skills they already know. We will begin with a review of Arrays and Loops, since those will be essential in just about every game/project we make. After that, we will introduce the critical programming concept of "Classes". Classes are a new way to think about variables are "objects" while programming, and will fundamentally change the way the students program.

Prerequisites:

Familiar with a typed language. Understanding of variables,

Class Features:
Class Project(s)

Students will have an introduction to classes and create object-oriented projects.

Virtual Machine (VM)

Not Included for In-Person Classes

A Virtual Machine is a remote desktop that allows students to connect to it from anywhere. We provide VMs so that students use it during classes and to work on homework.
Student Support:
Office Hours with
Teacher's Assistants

Office hours are led by our highly qualified teaching assistants. It is an easy and free way to get immediate feeback on your code. Our homework is difficult - office hours can help you overcome obstacles and develop a stronger understanding of the material!
Class Recordings

We provide recordings of our classes for if a student misses or needs to re-listen to a class.
Parent Support:
Student Progress Report

KTBYTE will e-mail parents with behavior and grade progess reports.
