Help planning out a GPA program

Any advice as to how I should format a GPA program I am making. You have
the user input how many classes they take, then you ask for their grade
percentages, then you convert them to grade points and calculate the
average.

Is this just a command-line script, or is it going to be a simple web
application? Because the way youd do the user interface would be fairly
different.

Even so, doing the wise things about separations of concerns is still
important in a command-line script as it is in a web applicaiton, so I
would make gathering input, storing or persisnting user information if
desired, calculating results, and reporting results separate. Id want to
understand if I need external storage for persistence or if the
information is just for the life of the script only. I would look at how
to gather the input from the user, and in what ways I could make the
easy for them, and Id look at how a user would prefer to see their GPA.

Breaking things into classes and modules will help keep concerns
separated, and have a bevy of tests to show things working at any point
during the development.

But thats how Id do it.

Yeah - Max, we need more details in order to help you. What are you
designing your program for? How do you want it to be used?
