A contributing motivator to improving a class grade is knowing where you stand in the class. Our goal for creating a grade calculator application was to simplify the process of determining a grade, therefore conserving one of the most valuable resources a student has, time.
What it does
It calculates your grade in any class.
How we built it
We decided to use Java because it is the language everyone in our group was most familiar with.
Challenges we ran into
Since we are beginners in our first semester of programming, we are not proficient in the language. Even though we have good ideas of how we wanted the program to work we had trouble translating it to Java. For example, after asking the user to input the grade and the maximum number of points possible.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Seeing that this is our first hackathon ever, we are proud of completing this task and in the process learning to create videos and sketches of our program, and uploading them in this platform.
What we learned
The mindset, depth and creativity it takes to create apps, and to appreciate the programmers that do so.
