课程概况

本课是一门计算机科学的导论课,作为解决真实世界中的分析问题的方法。
这门课是个两课系列的第一课:计算机科学及Python编程导论和计算思维及数据科学导论。这两门课旨在帮助没有计算机科学及编程学习经验的人,培养他们的计算思维,并且编写程序来解决一些实用的问题。有些人把这两门课当作更高级的计算机科学课程的垫脚石,但对更多的人来说,这将是他们第一个也是最后一个计算机科学课程。

鉴于这些课程对大多数学生来说有可能是他们学习的唯一一个正式的计算机科学课程,我们决定将重点放在广度上,而不是深度。这门课的目的是提供学生们在很多话题上的基础知识,这样当他们日后在职业生涯中遇到需要用计算来实现某些目标时,他们就知道这样是否可能。也就是说,这不是“计算欣赏”课,而是具有挑战性的缜密的课程,学生们需要花费大量的时间及精力来学习如何让计算机为他服务。

计算机科学及Python编程导论课内容包括计算概念,python编程语言,一些简单的算法,测试和调试以及计算复杂性导论,和一些简单的算法数据结构。

This course is the first of a two-course sequence: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python, and Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science. Together, they are designed to help people with no prior exposure to computer science or programming learn to think computationally and write programs to tackle useful problems. Some of the people taking the two courses will use them as a stepping stone to more advanced computer science courses, but for many it will be their first and last computer science courses. This run features lecture videos, lecture exercises, and problem sets using Python 3.5. Even if you previously took the course with Python 2.7, you will be able to easily transition to Python 3.5 in future courses, or enroll now to refresh your learning.

Since these courses may be the only formal computer science courses many of the students take, we have chosen to focus on breadth rather than depth. The goal is to provide students with a brief introduction to many topics so they will have an idea of what is possible when they need to think about how to use computation to accomplish some goal later in their career. That said, they are not “computation appreciation” courses. They are challenging and rigorous courses in which the students spend a lot of time and effort learning to bend the computer to their will.

你将学到什么

A Notion of computation

The Python programming language

Some simple algorithms

Testing and debugging

An informal introduction to algorithmic complexity

Data structures

预备知识

High school algebra and a reasonable aptitude for mathematics. Students without prior programming background will find there is a steep learning curve and may have to put in more than the estimated time effort.
