What Will This Course Do? Introduce the concept of a computer  language - grammar and syntax Cover important ideas of programming -  data structures, loops, control flow, etc. Continue developing linear thinking (an  example follows) Give you some idea of the use computers in  engineering - approximation, simulation,  etc.
