Java Programming Course - School Coding Course - K8 School - Course Overview
Tynker’s introduction to the Java programming language.
- GRADES 9+
This course introduces students to the Java programming language.
The course emphasizes problem-solving using an object-oriented methodology. Students will learn the Java programming language, study data structures, analyze algorithms, and get a deep understanding of object-oriented programming. This course is entirely web-based, so there’s no additional software to download or install. Each interactive lesson practices hands-on coding, while students learn to design and build and debug Java programs to solve real world problems.
Lessons also include free response practice questions and multiple-choice quizzes.
Students will gain foundational computational thinking skills, including:
- Program Design and Algorithm Development: Determine required code segments to produce a given output.
- Code Logic: Determine the output, value, or result of given program code given initial values.
- Code Implementation: Write and implement program code.
- Code Testing: Analyze program code for correctness, equivalence, and errors.
- Documentation: Describe the behavior and conditions that produce identified results in a program.
