"We built a program that returned a Fibonacci number from an array of such numbers, and another program that raced two players against each other through a single array. This involved practice with nested loops, instantiation of user-created classes, field variables, constants, and conditionals. We practiced looping through the arrays, and we practiced identifying the range restrictions on a variable and converting those range restrictions to conditional statements within an if clause. We practiced printing arrays to individual lines."
"Started making a new game similar to the "World's Hardest Game". We talked about implementing classes in a different way instead of using private classes in the same file. Figured out how to take input from the keyboard and find which key was pressed."
"For this session, we worked through some of the difficulties that the student had from the work that he did on his current assignment. He still needed some help with the practices used for linking various interface components together via program logic. We worked through this again, now using new code that he had partly generated using a WYSIWYG editor. By the end of the session, he seemed to have a decent grasp on the concepts worked through."
