Lab 1: Working with Arrays (100 pts)


Due Monday, April 20 at 11:59pm on Canvas

Before you begin!

  • Install Eclipse on your home computer (if needed)
    • You are required to use Eclipse in this class (Yes, really!).
    • You can use the Eclipse installed on lab computers in the ATC for assignments in this class or install it at home.
    • See my tutorial for help installing and creating a new project, and for a trouble shooting guide
    • See the De Anza CIS Tutorial on Eclipse for Mac and Windows
  • Install Zoom and invite your partner to a Zoom meeting
    • Follow the tutorial from the Office of Online Education here


Lab 1.1: Post a Clear Headshot Photo of Yourself on Your Canvas Profile (20 pts)

  • On Canvas, go to "Account" -> "Profile" -> Click on the photo and upload a new photo
  • Please select a photo that is a close up photo of your face to receive full credit.
  • The goal of this assignment is to help me learn your names. If I cannot see your face clearly, the photo will not be helpful.
  • Because the images on my course list are so small, this photo needs to be of your face only -- not your face and shoulders or your face and body -- or the image of your face will be too tiny for me to recognize.
For example:

Close Up Photo of Face would receive full credit (20/20)
Photo of face only (Albert Einstein)

Photo of face and shoulders would receive partial credit (15/20)

Photo of face and shoulders (Albert Einstein)

Photo of face and body would receive half credit (10/20)



  • Please do not upload a photo that is not of you or you will receive no credit for this assignment
  • Half credit for a photo of your face and body or if I cannot clearly see your face in the tiny image next to your name on my course list.
  • Half credit if I can only see one of your eyes.
  • No credit if I cannot see your face.
  • No credit for a photo that I consider to be inappropriate for an academic or professional setting.
  • No credit for a missing photo.
  • Feel free to make use of photo editing software to crop your photo.

Pair Programming Required (50 point deduction)

  • Both partners fill in, sign, date, and submit the pair programming contract
  • Upload the document(s) along with your Lab code to Canvas.
  • Only ONE partner submits the Lab code and Zoom video transcript (at least 10 minutes required, saved as an mp4) on Canvas.
  • BOTH partners submit the contract.
  • Please make sure both your names are on all the files.
  • Find a partner using Piazza.
  • If you need help finding a partner, please contact me as soon as possible.

Lab 1.2: Searching for Primes (80 pts)

  • Recall that a prime number is divisible only by itself and one.

  • Assume that we are given a list of all the prime numbers from 1 to 10,000, in sorted order in a text file called primes.txt:

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97, 101, 103, 107, 109, 113, 127, 131, 137, 139, 149, 151, 157, 163, 167, 173, 179, 181, 191, 193, 197, 199,

  • Without altering the file, write a program that will ask a user to enter a number between 1 and 10,000 and then report whether the number is prime.

  • The user should be able to continue entering numbers until pressing 'x' to indicate that they wish to stop.

  • To receive full credit, your program must:

    1. Read the numbers from a file

    2. Store them in an array

    3. Implement a the binary search method to search for the number entered by the user. Hint: See class notes.

  • Your program should be named Primes.java and must work identically to the sample output shown below:

Enter a number from 1 to 10,000 or 'x' to exit: 555
555 is composite.

Enter a number from 1 to 10,000 or 'x' to exit: 9997
9997 is composite.

Enter a number from 1 to 10,000 or 'x' to exit: 7901
7901 is prime!

Enter a number from 1 to 10,000 or 'x' to exit: 4482
4482 is composite.

Enter a number from 1 to 10,000 or 'x' to exit: 3
3 is prime!

Enter a number from 1 to 10,000 or 'x' to exit: 8
8 is composite!

Enter a number from 1 to 10,000 or 'x' to exit: x

Goodbye!
  • Additionally, your program must have a binary search method with the following signature, and must call this method to search for a prime number:
public static int binarySearch(String[] nums, String number) {
  • Additional restrictions to provide challenge... the only String methods you are allowed to call in your solution to this assignment are:
    • substring
    • length
    • charAt
    • toUpperCase
    • toLowerCase
    • equals
    • equalsIgnoreCase
    • compareTo
    • compareToIgnoreCase
  • Style requirements:
    • You should use proper indentation. If uncertain, remember to go to Source->Format on Eclipse to autoformat your code
    • Your method(s) should each have a full Javadoc comment placed above the method. See lesson 1 notes on Javadocs, if uncertain.
  • Hint: When comparing Strings, the Unicode value of the first character is used as the initial basis of comparison. For example, "9" will be considered bigger than "10" and "19" will be considered bigger than "180". You must adapt the binary search method to handle this issue in order to get the correct output.

What to Submit:

  • When you are satisfied your program is working properly, submit the following to Canvas:
    • Primes.java (only one partner)
    • Pair Programming Contract (both partners)
  • Please submit these files separately - no zip or compressed files (5 point deduction)
  • Please use the default package or remove your package statement before submitting (5 point deduction)
  • Please make sure both names are on your assignment (5 point deduction for missing name(s))
  • Please make sure your code is properly indented (5 point deduction for improperly indented code)
    • Hint: Go to source->format on Eclipse to auto-format your code

How You Will Be Graded:

  • 80 points: The assignment works as shown in the sample output. All required features are implemented and implemented correctly.
  • 60-80 points: The assignment works mostly as shown in the sample output. Most required features are implemented and implemented correctly. Wording or spacing choices may differ from those shown.
  • 40-60 points: Some of the assignment works as shown in the sample output. Some required features are implemented and implemented correctly.
  • 10-40 points: Serious problems in implementation and little correspondence between sample output and what is shown. Few of the features implemented or implemented correctly. Or, student did not pair program.
  • 0 points: Code does not compile or outputs an error at runtime.
  • Incorrect formatting (indentation) and incorrect or missing Javadoc comments will each lead to a 5 point deduction.
