CSCA08H3 S Introduction to Computer Science I Course Description Welcome to CSCA08H3 S. The goal of this course is to help you develop mastery of designing computer algorithms. This course is to help you think like a computer scientist for which you develop your problem solving skills the way a computer solves a problem. This is called algorithm design, which is the essential theme of this course. For that, you will learn about some concepts such as variables, arithmetic and logical operators, conditional statements, loop, object oriented design, and plenty of data structures such as lists, dictionaries and so on. Python programming language will be used as a tool for testing your knowledge. Learning Outcome By the end of the course you are able to design an algorithm for almost any given problem. You will also be able to write the corresponding code using Python programming language. You will be able to write a code which is neat and readable to others. Means of Communication Piazza discussion forum : This should be your first point of contact. This method is encouraged as more people are there to help and at the same time more people’s questions can be answered as one student’s question can be the same as others. Also, you learn from each other’s experience. Here is the link for piazza . Tutorials : This session is designed to help you practice what you have learned in the lecture. Further some new materials will also be given. Practical sessions : These are drop-in sessions in which you can get help for your exercises, technical issues, misconceptions etc. Even if you don’t have a question, you can attend and get access to some really good practice questions. Office hour : if you would like to talk to me face to face, you can meet me at my office IC468 on Mondays, 3-4 and Wednesdays 2-3. If you were not able to come to my office and you had a question that cannot be posted on discussion forum (e.g. personal issues) you can email me at [email protected] , please allow two working days for a response as there is only one of me and a lot of you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
