I'm trying to add a sqlite trigger to my android database.  I have 2 tables:
Courses(courseId, courseName,courseSection,courseLocation)
CourseGrade(courseId, courseName, courseGrade)

What I would like is when an insert is done on Courses, I would like to setup a trigger to insert courseId, and courseName into CourseGrade table.  Also when I delete a course from Courses table I would like to delete it from the courseGrade table.  Is this possible?

Almost the same as on other databases: http://www.sqlite.org/lang_createtrigger.html
If you try to establish 1:1 relation it might be better to alter first table instead (course grade is a very small field)

In have a database package with a createTables method.  How can I add the trigger to this code?
The page you gave is helpful but i'm looking for the syntax to add the trigger to this method.

private void createAllTables(SQLiteDatabase db) {

db.execSQL("CREATE TABLE Courses (CourseId varchar(10) NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY, CourseName varchar(25) NOT NULL, Section varchar(4), Location varchar(25))");

db.execSQL("CREATE TABLE CourseGrade(CourseId varchar(10),CourseName varchar(25),CourseGrade varchar(3),PRIMARY KEY(CourseId),FOREIGN KEY (CourseId) REFERENCES Courses(CourseId),FOREIGN KEY (CourseName) REFERENCES Courses(CourseName))");
