It aims to provide students with an understanding of the role computation can play in solving problems. It also aims to help students, regardless of their major, to feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs that allow them to accomplish useful goals. The class will use the Python programming language.
About This Course
Help students (who may or may not intend to major in computer science) to feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs.
Map scientific problems into computational frameworks.
Position students so that they can compete for jobs by providing competence and confidence in computational problem solving.
Prepare college freshman and sophomores who have no prior programming experience or knowledge of computer science for an easier entry into computer science or electrical engineering majors.
Prepare students from other majors to make profitable use of computational methods in their chosen field.
6.00SC can be summarized with these six major topics or objectives:
Learning about the process of writing and debugging a program
Learning about the process of moving from a problem statement to a computational formulation of a method for solving the problem
Learning about how to use computational tools to help model and understand data
6.00 is designed to help you become skillful at making the computer do what you want it to do. Once you acquire this skill, your first instinct when confronted with many tasks will be to write a program to do the task for you. Said another way, we want to help you learn to apply computational modes of thought to frame problems, and to guide the process of deducing information in a computational manner.
This means that the primary knowledge you will take away from this course is the art of computational problem solving. Unlike many introductory level courses, having an ability to memorize facts will be of little help in 6.00. This course is about learning to solve problems, not learning facts. This, by the way, is exactly why all exams are open book.
Prerequisites and Preparation
Since computer programming involves computational modes of thinking, it will help to have some mathematical and logical aptitude. You should be confident with your math skills up to pre-calculus.
