Si solo quieres leer y visualizar el contenido del curso, puedes participar del curso como oyente sin costo.

  • No, definitely not! This course is intended for anyone who has an interest in approaching problems more systematically, developing more efficient solutions, and understanding how computers can be used in the problem solving process. No prior computer science or programming experience is required.

  • Some parts of the course assume familiarity with basic algebra, trigonometry, mathematical functions, exponents, and logarithms. If you don’t remember those concepts or never learned them, don’t worry! As long as you’re comfortable with multiplication, you should still be able to follow along. For everything else, we’ll provide links to references that you can use as a refresher or as supplemental material.

  • This course will help you discover whether you have an aptitude for computational thinking. This is a useful predictor of success in the Master of Computer and Information Technology program at the University of Pennsylvania, which is offered both on-campus and online. In this course you will learn from MCIT instructors and become familiar with the quality and style of MCIT Online courses.

    If you have a bachelor's degree and are interested in learning more about computational thinking, we encourage you to apply to MCIT On-campus (http://www.cis.upenn.edu/prospective-students/graduate/mcit.php) or MCIT Online (https://onlinelearning.seas.upenn.edu/mcit/). Please mention that you have completed this course in the application.
