Lab 6: Instructor's Notes

This exercise leads students through the creation of a Fraction class by which fraction objects can be represented. The exercise consists of two parts:

  1. Part 1 builds the basic Fraction class, using only methods. The required files are,, and Fraction.doc. Students will work on constructors, accessors, mutators, and multiplication methods. As usual, your students will need to create a project.
  2. Part 2 extends part 1, by considering what methods need to be created to support basic output in Java. Your students should create a separate project in their workspaces to handle the compilation and linking of and the Fraction module files.

 As usual, we will also work with the ann package.
