About the Course

The 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). Do you have technical problems?

I liked the fact that the algorithms are not just the introductory searching and sorting algorithms. The assignments are fairly difficult (I have decent scripting experience), but not impossibly so.

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.

Есть множество недочётов как в субтитрах, так и в самих слайдах. Кто-то употребляет Тета, кто-то О большое, субтитры ужасны, местами перевод совершенно не тот.

While it is possible to muddle through this course and retain some of it, understanding some higher math and Big O notation is pretty essential.

The pseudo-code is not that good to understand quickly. Please can you code in one language say C++? It will be easy to understand that way.

Some of the lectures are poorly explained, you'll need to review those 2-3 times to understand. Other than that, good course for beginners.

it would be better to change the way to submit assignment. its hard to coding in local and upload file every time to check my code.

This course is very useful and widens one's brain. However, I always felt there was something missing in the explanation

The best thing about this course is the assignments but the course material needs to be discussed in a better way

Lectures are very confusing. Instructors should use white boarding to explain codes. Difficult to follow them.

Instructor was good but was not able to make us understand the concept easily..Need to be more ellaborative!

Content/ vedios are not so great as I thought of, Problems are challenging, you will learn a lot from them

Pretty challenging and makes you think out of the box! More resources for reading materials can be added.

Explanation needs lots of Improvement. The problems are very hard comparing to the explanation

Algorithm Assignments at later weeks were tough and had an intention to opt out of course.

The lectures were more narrative oriented and hence felt boring and monotonous at times.
