Part IB Assessed Exercise Briefing
Principal lecturer: Dr Steven Hand
Taken by: Part IA CST
The purpose of this briefing lecture is to describe the IB Java
Tick 0, an assessed exercise to be undertaken by all students who
intend to read Part IB of the Computer Science Tripos in the next
academic year. It is assessed as part of the second year Tripos
The summer programming work serves to give students some hands-on
experience of Java programming so that the second year courses on
advanced programming techniques does not leave them completely
The IB Java Tick 0 exercise uses a TickFrame.java file which can be
downloaded here. Note that the style in
which this is written is a little different than what you may have
seen in previous courses; however you should hopefully still be able
to understand it by reading the code and comments and documentation.
The handout is available as a 1up PDF.
