im supposed to design a set of classes that define various courses in my curriculum. I have to include the title, number, description of class, and department that teaches the course......what methods could i make abstract.....im a little confused on setting this one up
From your description so far it sounds like a single class would do the job. In a running program you could create any number of instances to represent different courses. With just that, I don't see any need for abstract methods.
But, if your assignment included instructions to use some abstract methods in an abstract class you'll have to find some. Can you give any more details about the assignment? Maybe it will have some hints.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
