Fundamentals of Computer Science II (CSC-152 99S)

Class 15: Algorithm Analysis

Back to Arrays and Sequences. On to Recursion.

Assignment 3

I believe that I now have assignment 3 from everyone who intended to do that assignment. We'll spend a little bit of time discussing the assignment, some common problems, and a better technique for the whole assignment.

What is that better technique? We can take advantage of inheritance. We'll design a general Drawable class that deals with size and color, and just have Circle and Square extend it. Now, DrawingAssistant need only have one copy of each method for Drawable, rather than two (or more).
