I have a problem here.
My first sem. of Comp Sci has just ended; I took the exam but still have a few programs to do and hand in. I didn't learn much since it was my teacher's first year of teaching and isn't too swell at it. I'm not taking the AP course of Comp Sci next sem. like I was scheduled; instead I'm just going to take an intro class when I get to college. I got accepted into UW-Oshkosh but the thing is they said I have to stay and pass the course I'm in, because I need the math credit. But I know it's impossible for me to do these things. I was hoping someone would be able to do a few programs for me. I know you guys can say I should have listened, or doing it for me doesn't help; but it will in the sense that I'll be able to go to college and study it then, otherwise there is a chance I won't get accepted to UW-O. So if anyone is willing to help that would be AMAZING, and if you can figure out a way for me to repay you I will.
Thanks.
Kent

PS
It's in JAVA, and
Once/if someone posts; I'll post the program instructions. :)

Learning is your job, not the teachers, but I'm not trying to pour salt on your wounds.

My guess is that no one here is going to help you the way you are asking.

What I think could happen is that if there are specific things you are having issues with, post questions about those areas, and I'll bet you get some help.

If you post, I would like to see what you have actually accomplished, along with your specific questions where you are stuck. We're all quite helpful when you show effort - we'll help you work through it. But, the majority of posters here frown on people asking for the whole enchilada.

This is terrible, and I hope a mod removes it. we have offered help in the past. we (i guess i should only speak for myself, so *I*...) won't do your homework for you. The only other time you've posted was to ask a question about a program you were struggling with, and there were a lot of suggestions by myself and others. Eventually, a new project that was easier to handle was described and essentially designed for you. You should *not* pass a class if you can't do the work, even if the teacher was suboptimal. I am disappointed in the experience you had, but that should be taken up with a department head or principal, vice principal, etc. at your school, not handled by cheating.

But I know it's impossible for me to do these things.

If you truly believe that then it will be impossible.

The only difference between a successful person and an unsuccessful person is self belief.

Cheating won't get you anywhere in life and it certainly won't give you any self respect.

Yup, not surprised by your answers.
Lee, I decided to go with a different program and used that for the exam. Pretty sure I passed that part.
Thanks for the help.
But for the rest, even helping me isn't going to teach me everything I need to know for these programs. And if you did, and I did these programs; you think doing these few programs is going to engrave it in my head?
I'm sorry most of you are idiots and don't understand that principles won't do anything.

:rolleyes:
Hopefully you'll do better next year and you won't have to lie and cheat.

Trying to make yourself sound like an adult, doesn't make you one.

No, but it would have been a starting point, and we could work from there. What you have now is nothing, and until you put in the effort, that is unfortunately what it will remain.

Good luck in college!

I'm entirely self taught when it comes to programming so I am not very sympathetic when people try and blame bad teachers on their supposed inability to program.

So what if you have a bad teacher? Just teach yourself. There are thousands if not millions of free articles on the web to help beginners learn Java.

Edit : You could probably learn enough Java to write the program you are talking about from scratch (as in with no prior knowledge of Java) in 2 days if you spent the time reading Suns documentation.
