I don't think my pre-calculus teacher would approve of me programming in class so that's a no-no
As for the Java course, I've already finished the work for this semester (we are only heading up to chapter 9 - which introduces how to use JComponent and a Frame to draw a circle - i've decided to move on and am approaching the end of chapter 12) That was the pinnacle of this course - took me 3 weeks to get there and now I'm bored (hence why I hopped on here - game programming is something I'm very interested in). The first 9 chapters are pretty much - the jvm, syntax, how to declare variables, an array and touching on class design. Pretty lame course.
The assignment due last week was something along he lines of storing two names and variables and outputting which person had the greater age - spent the entire time reading ahead in the book (it goes from 17:00-23:00) - Also have been looking into C++ to familiarize myself with the syntax of that language since I am required to take it next semester
