Introduction

This section of the site provides access to several problem sets created for freshman computer science using the Problem Set Framework.

Read-Write Problem Set

The Read-Write Problem Set and Tutorial explains the basic programming pattern: read information, perform computation, report the results. The accompanying Java tutorial explains the use of primitive type variables: the declaration, initialization, and use for input, output, and in arithmetic computations. The solved problems illustrate the use of this pattern on concrete examples.

Simple Functions Problem Set

The Simple Functions Problem Set and Tutorial illustrates how to define and use simple functions in Java. The solved problems illustrate the use of this pattern on concrete examples.

Decisions Problem Set

The Decisions Problem Set and Tutorial illustrates how to define and use decisions in Java. The solved problems illustrate the use of this pattern on concrete examples.

Counting Loops Problem Set

The Counting Loops Problem Set and Tutorial illustrates how to define and use counting loops in Java. The solved problems illustrate the use of this pattern on concrete examples.

Conditional Loops Problem Set

The Conditional Loops Problem Set and Tutorial illustrates how to define and use conditional loops in Java. The solved problems illustrate the use of this pattern on concrete examples.

Strings Problem Set

The Strings Problem Set and Tutorial illustrates how to define and use Strings in Java. The solved problems illustrate the use of this pattern on concrete examples.
