Introduction to Programming and Computing

logo

Abstract: This course is an introduction to computing and programming. Its major goal is to introduce students to the principles of systematic problem solving through programming and the basic rules of computation.

The course does not assume any prior programming experience. It is therefore suitable for freshmen students---majors and non-majors alike---who wish to explore the intellectual ideas in the discipline.

Prerequisites: The course assumes a basic familiarity with arithmetic and algebra. It does demand curiosity, self-discipline, and some amount of people skills---because all computer scientists end up working with others interactively all the time.


If you wish to speak with an instructor before the course starts on Wedneday, 8 September 2004, please contact John Clements.
