“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

Quizzes are not the best, almost outdated and inaccurate sometimes

I have learnt about how maths plays a good roles in computer science.

Best course. and it gives lots of questions to solve and to practice.

Thanks a lot for the nice course, there is comprehensive and laconic explanation especially for modular arithmetic. Before I had some problems with it.
