This online course covers basic algorithmic techniques and ideas for computational problems arising frequently in practical applications: sorting and searching, divide and conquer, greedy algorithms, dynamic programming. We will learn a lot of theory: how to sort data and how it helps for searching; how to break a large problem into pieces and solve them recursively; when it makes sense to proceed greedily; how dynamic programming is used in genomic studies. You will practice solving computational problems, designing new algorithms, and implementing solutions efficiently (so that they run in less than a second).

TOP REVIEWS FROM ALGORITHMIC TOOLBOX
Excellent Course !! The concepts are explained well and the programming exercise provide good learning. I learnt a lot from the Course. Thanks to the instructors for creating such a nice course !!
An excellent course, Better than most Universities in India. I would recommend to stick to the problems and really putting in the efforts, to solve all the problems, It will be worth the effort.
best course for clearing basics of algorithms as well as learning by doing and blow your mind by thinking hard from different prospectives to get desired solutions of programming assignments ...
good course, I like the fact you can use a lot of languages for you programming exercises, the content is really helpful, I would like to have more indications from the grading system to save time.
