Mark Guzdial and Barb Ericson have a most effective method for teaching computing and Java programming in a context that readers find interesting: manipulating digital media. Readers get started right away by learning how to write programs that create interesting effects with sounds, pictures, web pages, and video. The authors use these multimedia applications to teach critical programming skills and principles like how to design and use algorithms, and practical software engineering methods–all in the context of learning how to program in Java. Mark and Barb also demonstrate how to communicate compatibly through networks and do concurrent programming. The book also includes optional coverage of rudimentary data structures and databases using Java and comes with a CD-ROM containing all the code files referenced in the text and required for media manipulation. Allows readers to use their own media, such as personal sound or picture files. Demonstrates how to manipulate media in useful ways, from reducing red eye and splicing sounds to generating digital video special effects. The book also includes optional coverage of rudimentary data structures and databases using Java and comes with a CD-ROM containing all the code files referenced in the text and required for media manipulation. For beginners interested in learning more about basic multimedia computing and programming.

This 14-chapter introduction to programming with Java at the CS-1 level, uses multimedia-based programs as a means of instruction. Multimedia is a combination of various media such as text, audio, video, images, graphics and animation. With this book, students will learn Java using programs that draw graphics and images, perform animation, read and play music files, display video, and more. This text uses clear explanations and illustrations, and does not require prior programming experience, knowledge of graphics, or other media API's. Progamming with Java: A Multimedia Approach covers topics such as variables, data types, literals, operators, creating objects, Java 2D classes, user-defined classes, inheritance, interfaces, exception handling, GUI programming, generics and collections, and multithreaded programming. It also provides introductions to arrays and the scanner class. TuringsCraft CodeLab access is available for adopting professors. Custom CodeLab: CodeLab is a web-based interactive programming exercise service that has been customized to accompany this text. It provides numerous short exercises, each focused on a particular programming idea or language construct.

Learner Centered Design of Computing Education

Genre: Computers

Computing education is in enormous demand. Many students (both children and adult) are realizing that they will need programming in the future. This book presents the argument that they are not all going to use programming in the same way and for the same purposes. What do we mean when we talk about teaching everyone to program? When we target a broad audience, should we have the same goals as computer science education for professional software developers? How do we design computing education that works for everyone? This book proposes use of a learner-centered design approach to create computing education for a broad audience. It considers several reasons for teaching computing to everyone and how the different reasons lead to different choices about learning goals and teaching methods. The book reviews the history of the idea that programming isn’t just for the professional software developer. It uses research studies on teaching computing in liberal arts programs, to graphic designers, to high school teachers, in order to explore the idea that computer science for everyone requires us to re-think how we teach and what we teach. The conclusion describes how we might create computing education for everyone.

Problem Solving with Data Structures Using Java

Author: Mark Guzdial
Publisher: Prentice Hall
ISBN: 9780136060611
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Computers

Problem Solving with Data Structures, First Edition is not a traditional data structures textbook that teaches concepts in an abstract, and often dry, context that focuses on data structures using numbers. Instead, this book takes a more creative approach that uses media and simulations (specifically, trees and linked lists of images and music), to make concepts more concrete, more relatable, and therefore much more motivating for students. This book is appropriate for both majors and non-majors. It provides an introduction to object-oriented programming in Java, arrays, linked lists, trees, stacks, queues, lists, maps, and heaps. It also covers an existing simulation package (Greenfoot) and how to create continuous and discrete event simulations.

This Java Book is One of worlds Best Java Book, Author teaches concepts of problem-solving and object-oriented programming using a fundamentals-first approach. Beginning programmers learn critical problem-solving techniques then move on to grasp the key concepts of object-oriented, GUI programming, advanced GUI and Web programming using Java. Regardless of major, students will be able to grasp concepts of problem-solving and programming — thanks to Authors’ fundamentals-first approach, students learn critical problem solving skills and core constructs before object-oriented programming. Authors’ approach has been extended to application-rich programming examples, which go beyond the traditional math-based problems found in most texts. Students are introduced to topics like control statements, methods, and arrays before learning to create classes. Later chapters introduce advanced topics including graphical user interface, exception handling, I/O, and data structures. Small, simple examples demonstrate concepts and techniques while longer examples are presented in case studies with overall discussions and thorough line-by-line explanations. Increased data structures chapters make the Tenth Edition ideal for a full course on data structures. BRIEF CONTENTS- ============= 1. Introduction to Computers, Programs, and Java-1 2.
