“Welcome to Introduction to Numerical Mathematics. This is designed to give you part of the mathematical foundations needed to work in computer science in any of its strands, from business to visual digital arts, music, games. At any stage of the problem solving and modelling stage you will require numerical and computational tools. We get you started in binary and other number bases, some tools to make sense of sequences of numbers, how to represent space numerical using coordinates, how to study variations of quantities via functions and their graphs. For this we prepared computing and everyday life problems for you to solve using these tools, from sending secret messages to designing computer graphics.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MATHEMATICS FOR COMPUTER SCIENCE
This instructor makes math really fun! The material was challenging, but she was very engaging and gave a lot of descriptive examples.
Very good course. I am left feeling like I want more. The professor was excellent. The material was well presented.
Excellent content and the way it was taught made it simple.
Quizzes are not the best, almost outdated and inaccurate sometimes
