This two-part course introduces the basic mathematical and programming principles that underlie much of Computer Science. Understanding these principles is crucial to the process of creating efficient and well-structured solutions for computational problems. To get hands-on experience working with these concepts, we will use the Python programming language. The main focus of the class will be weekly mini-projects that build upon the mathematical and programming principles that are taught in the class. To keep the class fun and engaging, many of the projects will involve working with strategy-based games.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PRINCIPLES OF COMPUTING (PART 2)
Interesting, but challenging course. Some weeks might take longer than a week, but don't give up. If you pull through, you have accomplished quite a lot.
wonderfully fun assignments!:)
Last one is killer... hardest one I faced on Coursera!:)
Tough! but very kind explanation and hard work! Thank you, teachers!
Very challenging projects and a very interesting way to learn about data structures. Lecturers are really great
