Part A: Killing Us Softly 3
In an earlier lesson, the class created a form called Math Operations in which it has two text fields for user input and four buttons for the four basic arithmetic operations. The class then typed in code for the “Add” button in which it calculated the sum of two numbers in the text fields but crashed when one of its input is numeric. This issue was addressed in the String Operations example in which the class learned how to check if the input in the text fields are numeric and how to combine two or more strings. These examples can be found on the school network drive under S:\Handout\Programming 11-12.

For the first assignment, you will have the opportunity to introduce “you” to your teacher and peers by creating and presenting a slideshow. Your presentation will be timed and recorded.
