CS 101 - Intro Computing: Engrg & Sci
(Required) A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python, 5th edition, Hans Petter Langtangen, ISBN: 978-3-662-49886-6
Goal 1 Students should be able to solve problems algorithmically.
Goal 2 Students should be proficient in “computational thinking”, meaning that students should be able to conduct major- appropriate abstraction, modeling, representations of information, and algorithmic thinking related to solving engineering problems.
Goal 3 Students should be confident about using computation as a standard tool, on the same level as math and physics.
Goal 4 Students should be able to program in a high-level language (e.g., Python or MATLAB).
Goal 5 Students should access data sources, process data, and create outputs including various, plots.
Goal 6 Students should use MATLAB proficiently.
Functions and scripts
Symbolic Algebra & Calculus
Numerical Algebra & Calculus
Curve Fitting & Regression
Assessment and Revisions
Course redesign from scratch based on college committee recommendations.
Change programming language(s) to Python and MATLAB
Focus on basic data processing with numerics (rather than array structure and similar C concepts)
|Fall 2015||Changing requirements of College of Enginering, as CS101 is a service course.|
|Use of Jupyter note books for lab exercises||Spring 2016||Increased interactivity of lab exercises and provided access to an autograding system.|
Required, Elective, or Selected Elective
Required in most Engineering programs.
