Mathematics for Computer Science

This course is a part of Introduction to Computer Science and Programming, a 3-course Specialization series from Coursera.

“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!”

What people are saying

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

absolutely no support in one review

I knew most of the material before taking the course and I was unable to achieve a perfect grade, partly due to the fact that there is absolutely no support from the teaching staff and partly due to the grading system used by the university.

containing spelling mistakes in one review

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.

especially disappointed with in one review

I was especially disappointed with the quality of the quizzes and other assignments: there were many mathematical expressions that weren't formatted correctly which made it very hard to decipher them.

examinations could use in one review

The content is very interesting and the professor is amazing.But, the quality of the examinations could use some perfecting, although they are challenging and relevant which is a very good thing!

instances where even in one review

wrong.tells us formulas in one review

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.
