This two-part course introduces the basic mathematical and programming principles that underlie much of Computer Science. Understanding these principles is crucial to the process of creating efficient and well-structured solutions for computational problems. To get hands-on experience working with these concepts, we will use the Python programming language. The main focus of the class will be weekly mini-projects 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 2)
Helped me gain a lot of insight on Python coding. It was a great course to set up the basic to advanced journey for a coder.
Very well taught. A lot of fun taking up this course. Hope there will be a 2nd season for this specialization course.
Phew, this course was much harder than the preceding courses. Some assignments took many hours of work over several days. But it's doable, and well worth it.
Great course, I hope for more of this kind of courses. Invaluable skills gained from this course. High praise to all the professors. Thank You Very Much.
