CSCI 157 - HW 9

Homework 9 - Chapters 1-18

Go Crazy, but in an Interesting Way

  1. Consider the following
    • Figure 17.15 on page 495
    • Source code provided for RubberBall and TennisBall provided on page 495.

    Write the fourth class for BasketBall & provide a client that generates your own copy of Figure 17.15, sized as shown. This should not take long unless you are a very slowwwww typist.

    Submit only your Client (5 pts) and BasketBall (15 pts) class. I have the other two classes with which I will test your client.

  2. Design your own application that makes sense and you think will be amusing or interesting in some way to me (your grader!)
    • (20 pts) uses arrays (single dimensional, multi-dimensional, or -heck- both) in sensible way(s)
    • (40 pts) uses inheritance starting from one objectdraw graphical class and extends it in non-trivial ways through at least two levels of inheritance. Be warned! This *must* include both mutating and accessing methods. (ie, MORE than just constructors) Extra Credit possible for a 3rd level but will be considered only if all other parts of this assignment have been included.
    • (10 pts) uses File I/O, where file name(s) are not know in advance, to get some necessary information that is used in visually apparent way in your graphics. and record some changed information.
    • (10 pts) a client that uses the full functionality of all of the above in some coherent way that is intuitive to a user -- who is not just you!

For this last homework assignment, coding standards will be graded as part of each exercise.
If you make a good faith effort to fully satisfy them all, you will not lose points.
If you get sloppy ... well ... just don't.

This is your grand finale. Have fun!
