Discussion Questions

All Discussion Questions are due at the end of the week in the week that they are posted. Your initial response should be about 150-200 words. Please make sure that you answer each of the discussion questions. Please note the due date for each Discussion question, Due dates are usually Wednesday through Saturday.

Programming Assignments

All programs must be documented, with a header stating your name, the UOP class details, date created, and a brief description of the program. Comments should be placed throughout the code explaining the logic and structure of your program.

Each week you will turn in the following as part of the assignment:

1. Java source code files that were used to build the executable, these should end with the extension .java 2. A flow chart or pseudo code description of the algorithm for the program. 3. A screen shot showing the executed program running on your system. 4. A Certificate...
