About this Guided Project

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Learners will be introduced to the banking application, and get to view the planned design of the application

  2. Learners will learn how to output to the user and setup to take input

  3. Learners will discover the many different numeric variable types in Java, and get hands on experience with assigning input to a variable.

  4. Learners will learn how to create branching logic in programs using conditional statements. Learners will discover the syntax necessary for if and else statements.

  5. Students will learn how to create an array and how to assign values to each index. We will also why and how to keep track of a size counter.

  6. Learners will get practice with operations on variables, and get to see how Java deals with decimal values when they are output to the user.

  7. Students will discover how to use an array to make their program loop so it functions like a real-life program. Learners will also discover how a for loop can traverse all filled values in an array.

  8. Students will learn how to make their program quit. They will also get to test the final program, and learn a common tool for debugging a program.
