Java: Learning to Program with Robots

Java: Learning to Program with Robots

“Java: Learning to Program with Robots” is an innovative approach to teaching and learning introductory object-oriented programming. Students are introduced to object-oriented concepts with simulated robots, a hands-on approach that is engaging and fun for both students and instructors.

Book Description

This text begins with programming virtual robots to teach object-oriented programming in general. Once students are comfortable with many aspects of objects and classes, the examples shift from robots to a much broader set of examples. Each chapter ends with a section on graphics and graphical user interfaces, applying the concepts learned to a different context. Transferring the knowledge gained using robots to another problem is an important part of mastering the material.
