DS 001 SC - Introduction to Python and Data Analysis


This course is the first part of a two-semester flipped-course introduction to computer programming, offered with the support of Google. Students will engage with interactive media to learn the fundamental programming constructs and data structures of Python (conditionals, loops, functions, lists, dictionaries, etc.) and use them to creatively design, test, and implement algorithms and programs while working on collaborative in-class projects based on real-world problems in graphics, image processing, cryptography, data analysis, astronomy, video games, and environmental simulation. Prior programming experience not required. This course is for non-CS majors only and does not fulfill the Scripps Math GE requirement.
 

Former course number: MATH042  SC

Course Credit: 1.0
Offered: Every fall


Please refer to the course schedule on the Scripps Portal for current course offerings and details.
