Java Variables: Mad Libs
Let's build fluency in Java fundamentals. In this next Pro Project, we're going to practice creating variables and printing. You have learned these skills already, so we're going to put them to the test by generating a story, Mad Libs style.
It's time to build fluency with operators in Java. In this project, we're going to practice arithmetic in Java so you can hone your skills and feel confident taking them to the real world. Why? Practicing computing integer values with Java's arithmetic operators will help you with a wide, wide range of Java tasks in the future. What's next? Some math, more Java, and a sprinkle of magic. You got this!
