Projects in this course
Planting a TreeWrite your first Java program from scratch by introducing yourself to users and planting a tree for them. You'll practice creating a class, defining the main method, and organizing print statements.
Java Variables: Mad LibsLet'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.
Math MagicIt'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.
