About the content

In this computer science course, you will learn about foundational computing principles, such as how to write and read computer code and how to run and debug code.

You will learn about programming concepts in Python and how they demonstrate computing principles and domain applications that use programming concepts and computing principles in real applications.

The course will also cover:

  • procedural programming
  • control structures
  • data structures
  • advanced topics in algorithms and object-oriented programming

This course builds on a custom textbook written for the class and online course delivery and provides ample interaction and formative evaluation. The course teaches both the theory and implementation of core computing concepts in a highly interactive, multi-modal manner.
