The purpose of this assignment is to allow you to practice using CodeWarrior, which is the Java interactive development environment (IDE) we will be using in this class. Also, you will practice writing and debugging small Java programs.
In general, I will hand out assignments during lab time on Wednesdays and they will be due the following Wednesday at the beginning of lab time. You should start the assignment during lab, but you should not feel pressure to finish it. If there is more than one part, it is sometimes a good idea to do a little work on each part and come back to it later.
Some people may finish some assignments during the lab (especially the first one), but in general it is expected that you will finish on their own time during the week. You should plan to spend about 6 hours per week in the lab (including the lab time). If you schedule this time, it will be easier to keep up. Also, you will probably find that several 1-2 hour sessions is more effective than one marathon session.
