This two-part course builds upon the programming skills that you learned in our Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python course. We will augment those skills with both important programming practices and critical mathematical problem solving skills. These skills underlie larger scale computational problem solving and programming. The main focus of the class will be programming weekly mini-projects in Python that build upon the mathematical and programming principles that are taught in the class. To keep the class fun and engaging, many of the projects will involve working with strategy-based games.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PRINCIPLES OF COMPUTING (PART 1)
i enjoyed a lot, the syllabus in this course is really useful, and the application that we see in our day to day life
Course was a good progression on the Intro to Python courses
very wellmade assignments! that goes a long way! plotting seemed a bit superflous and not much learned.\n\nThank you professors!
definitely gets you thinking the right way about programming (math, algorithms, efficiency, etc.
About the Fundamentals of Computing Specialization
This Specialization covers much of the material that first-year Computer Science students take at Rice University, brought to you by the world-class Faculty who teach our master's and PhD programs. Students learn sophisticated programming skills in Python from the ground up and apply these skills in building more than 20 fun projects.
