I've just been hired to teach high school programming classes and one of them will be taught in Java. I've programmed in Java, but never installed/set it up on my own computer and it is not currently on the school lab computers.

What do I need / need to do to get Java running on 25 lab computers by next week when school starts?!

Thanks.

Go here: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

Download JDK 5.0 Update 7. Make sure you download the offline installer. Run the installer on the computers.

Read the installation notes for any additional setup instructions. Probably the only thing you need to do is add the JDK bin directory to the PATH environment variable (the instructions explain how to do this).

You can find the JDK documentation here: http://java.sun.com/javase/reference/api.jsp
You can view the documentation online if you have an Internet connection, or you can download it separately (in a ZIP file).

Sara,

Are you teaching Advanced Placement Computer Science in your high school?
Also, is this your first time ever teaching high school programming?

Thanks for the advice. I get my classroom tomorrow, so I'll see how it goes and keep you posted.

It is my first time teaching an all-programming course in a high school. Though I T.A.ed a few programming courses while completing my masters and I've been teaching high school math for several years.

None of the classes are Advanced Placement, but one of them is International Baccalaureate.

Thanks again!
