You are here

Introduces programming in Python, a high-level programming language used in the physical and social sciences and for Internet scripting.

Students write programs to solve sample problems drawn from a wide range of disciplines, primarily in the sciences. No prior programming experience is required, but a mathematics background at the pre-calculus level is assumed. This course and courses 5C and 5J cover similar concepts, but use different programming languages.(General Education Code(s): IN, MF - Mathematical and Formal Reasoning) D. Long, E. Miller
