Mathematics for Computer Science

Introduction to Computer Science and Programming,

“Welcome to Introduction to Numerical Mathematics. This is designed to give you part of the mathematical foundations needed to work in computer science in any of its strands, from business to visual digital arts, music, games. At any stage of the problem solving and modelling stage you will require numerical and computational tools. We get you started in binary and other number bases, some tools to make sense of sequences of numbers, how to represent space numerical using coordinates, how to study variations of quantities via functions and their graphs. For this we prepared computing and everyday life problems for you to solve using these tools, from sending secret messages to designing computer graphics. If you wish to take it further you can join the BSc Computer Science degree and complete the full module ‘Numerical Mathematics’. Enjoy!”

containing spelling mistakes here

Apart from having badly formatted questions (containing spelling mistakes here and there), there are a few instances where even the answers gathered from the grading tools are wrong in some cases and at the very least ambiguous in other cases.

receiving full credit impossible

Several of the quizzes had errors in the material which made answering the question and receiving full credit impossible.

sometime buggy otherwise everything

quizes are sometime buggy otherwise everything is fine I didn't purchase the certificate because I only do this for learning, but I completed all the contents that were allowed to me and I loved the course.

cs50 by harvard university

Overall, I would recommend other courses such as CS50 by Harvard University before this one if you are looking for a certificate.

expanded my math knowledge

The course really expanded my math knowledge and sparked the interest to learn even more.

university regarding these issues

I have submitted these to the Coursera Support staff, and they are to get in contact with the university regarding these issues.

love practical tasks

Love practical tasks with implementation of steganography and cryptography.

loosely defined ways

wrong.tells us formulas

I really want to give it 3.5, not 4 Some questions are wrong.Tells us formulas but doesn't tell the proof of it.

my only complaint

My only complaint would be some seeming technical flaws with some tests that made a few questions hard to understand.

so far so

So far so good.
