Description

This package includes MyProgrammingLab ®.

 

Starting Out with Java: From Control Structures through Objects provides a step-by-step introduction to programming in Java. Gaddis covers procedural programming—control structures and methods—before introducing object-oriented programming, ensuring that students understand fundamental programming and problem-solving concepts.
 
As with all Gaddis texts, every chapter contains clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises.
 
This package includes MyProgrammingLab, an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

 

MyProgrammingLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Please be sure you have the correct ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content, which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

Starting Out with Java: From Control Structures through Objects includes the following features to facilitate learning:

 

A clear, easy to understand, and friendly writing style guides beginner programmers in learning to code with Java.

 

Practical organization helps students grasp important concepts before applying them.

  • Procedural programming is covered before objects, ensuring that students understand fundamental programming and problem-solving concepts.
  • UPDATED! The text has been updated to reflect the latest changes in Java
  • NEW! Chapter 15: Creating GUI Applications with JavaFX and Scene Builder introduces students to JavaFX, the newest way to create GUIs and graphical applications with Java 8. Written as an independent chapter, instructors have the choice to teach it together or separate from chapters on Swing and AWT.
  • NEW! The text now uses string.format instead of DecimalFormat, which allows students to use the same format specifiers and flags as learned with the system.out.printf method.
  • UPDATED! StringTokenizer has been removed from the text. All string tokenizing is now done with the String.split method.
  • NEW! Chapter 10 now introduces students to the @Override annotation and explains how it prevents subtle errors.
  • NEW! A section on Anonymous Inner Classes has been added to the text.
  • REVISED! The introduction to interfaces has been rewritten more clearly and easier to understand.
  • NEW! Material on default methods in interfaces, a new feature of Java 8, has been added to Chapter 10.
  • NEW! Functional interfaces and Lambda expressions are introduced in a new section of Chapter 10 with detailed, step-by-step instructions.

 

The text uses practical, real world problems and examples to convey major concepts.

  • NEW! Programming problems have been added to many chapters.
  • A variety of exercises in each chapter encourages students to apply key ideas.
  • Example Programs are practical, real-world examples provided in each chapter that test student knowledge of important information.

 

Pedagogical Features reinforce key ideas throughout the text.

  • In the Spotlight features walk students through the step-by-step design of a problem.
  • Concept Statements begin each chapter by summarizing the main focus.
  • Program Outputs follow each example program with a sample of its output to show students how the program functions.
  • Checkpoints are highlighted by checkmark icons and appear throughout each chapter to reinforce students understanding of key chapter topics.

 

This package includes MyProgrammingLab ®, an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

  • Interactive Practice helps students gain first-hand programming experience in an interactive online environment.
  • Step-by-step VideoNote Tutorials enhance the programming concepts presented in your Pearson textbook by allowing students to view the entire problem-solving process outside of the classroom—when they need help the most.
  • Pearson eText gives students access to their textbook anytime, anywhere. In addition to note taking, highlighting, and bookmarking, the Pearson eText offers interactive and sharing features. Rich media options let students watch lecture and example videos as they read or do their homework. Instructors can share their comments or highlights, and students can add their own, creating a tight community of learners in your class. The Pearson eText companion app allows existing subscribers to access their titles on an iPad or Android tablet for either online or offline viewing.
  • Dynamic grading and assessment ensure your students' submissions are automatically graded, both saving you time, and offering students immediate learning opportunities. Gradebook results can be exported to Excel to use with your LMS.
