Thank you for choosing my savings calculator. Today we will be learning how to program a BankAccount class to keep track of your own personal expenses and savings. In order to make a bank account to track your expenses you will first need a basic understanding of Java as well as a Java compiler. In this tutorial I will be using Eclipse. (You can use any compiler that you prefer.)

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Create a New Package "Bank" in a Blank Java Project
Step 2: Create Two New Class’ “BankAccount” and “BankAccountTester”
Step 3: In “BankAccount” You Will Need to Initiate 3 Private Variables
Step 4: Create a BankAccount Constructor
Step 5: Outline 5 Method Headers
Create “public void deposit(double x)”, ”public void withdrawal(double x)”, ”public double average()”, ”public String statement()”, and ”public double balance()”
Step 6: Program Deposit
Step 7: Program Withdrawal
Step 8: Program Average
Step 9: Program Statement
Step 10: Program Balance
Step 11: In "BankAccountTester" Program Your Import Statements
Step 12: Create the Header
Step 13: Create Welcome Statements
Step 14: Create a While Loop
Step 15: Create the User Input (Within the While Loop)
Step 16: Create the User Interface (Within the While Loop)
Step 17: Create the Closing Statements (Outside the While Loop)
Step 18: Test Your New Code in the Console
If there are any errors in your code, you should try troubleshooting your output statements in the Tester class. Also, make sure that all of your code is in the correct loop/ if statement.
If all is working well then congratulations, you should now have a fully functional BankAccount. Now you can easily keep track of your savings. Thank you and enjoy your new program.
