Over 100 high school and college instructors across the U.S.A. and around the world are teaching from this textbook. This book focuses on software development with an object-oriented approach. Java is used for the implementation, since it's well suited for learning and doing object-oriented software development. This book does not require any knowledge of programming or any mathematics beyond elementary algebra and (in a few places) a bit of trigonometry.
