Need a quick unit in Java - unit 3?


#1

I currently teach an exploring computer science course. I need to squeeze in a unit on programming in Java for my students. I am looking at having them complete unit 3 under the CSP course.

Thoughts? Something that you think could work better? How long do you think it will take?

Background: This is going to be done by 9th grade at a very high preforming school. We have already completed units on Scratch and Alice.

Thanks!

Hi @jessica_aydlette,

Can you give some context about why you need to squeeze in a unit on Java? What are the goals of doing so?

Also, unit 3 in CSP is in JavaScript, not Java. I know it’s confusing that the names sound so similar, but they are actually quite different.

A little more context with what students have covered in Scratch and Alice would help predict how long unit 3 would take. Depending on what they have done and what your goals are, it might be a good idea to look at unit 5 too!

Happy coding!
