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)
very helpful course, the projects are challenging but interesting to work on!
Great course, but the final project in W4 is very long compared the rest of the projects in this series of courses. Content is still top notch though.
Very challenging projects and a very interesting way to learn about data structures. Lecturers are really great
Another fantastic course from the team at Rice University. The coursework is interesting and challenging, and I really feel I have learned a lot.
