Acerca del Curso

Mathematical thinking is crucial in all areas of computer science: algorithms, bioinformatics, computer graphics, data science, machine learning, etc. In this course, we will learn the most important tools used in discrete mathematics: induction, recursion, logic, invariants, examples, optimality. We will use these tools to answer typical programming questions like: How can we be certain a solution exists? Am I sure my program computes the optimal answer? Do each of these objects meet the given requirements? In the online course, we use a try-this-before-we-explain-everything approach: you will be solving many interactive (and mobile friendly) puzzles that were carefully designed to allow you to invent many of the important ideas and concepts yourself. Prerequisites: 1. We assume only basic math (e.g., we expect you to know what is a square or how to add fractions), common sense and curiosity. 2. Basic programming knowledge is necessary as some quizzes require programming in Python....

The teachers are informative and good. They explain the topic in a way that we can easily understand. The slides provide all the information that is needed. The external tools are fun and informative.

It is a great course! teachers explain everything with care. While providing lectures there are some popup ques that verify whether you understood that lecture or not. Overall, a great experience.

Great course gives you an algorithmic touch Do this specialization before doing the DSA specialisation

Get comfortable with python syntax before starting this.

Alexander Chen gave a hard time in last week, but i liked how in his lectures there were numerous cunning pop ups which made it impossible to get distracted

Instructors are very knowledgeable and the lessons are usually helpful, but it's common for the explanations to contain errors or be unclear in some way.

The course was extremely helpful and easy to follow. The inclusion of interactive puzzles made the course more interesting and urged me to learn more.

The course contents were excellent, well designed. But towards the end of the course, things became confusing. Reviewing videos did not help.

Overall it is good. The courses in the last week, however, are not connected well with the quiz and thus the quiz is very challenging

Lectures have a piece of great knowledge about the subject but they lack a bit to explain it fluently.

Great course though. Enjoyed

I feel like the last week was a bit too hectic, as compared to the rest of the course. It could stand to be more explanatory.

It felt more like learning how to do puzzles rather than learning math. But maybe that was the objective and I didn't get it!

Really nice course. The four stars are due to the time taking by the teaching staff to reply to the questions in the forum.

The course was awesome. I learnt and enjoyed it. Should provide the hints/solutions for algorithm problems in the quizes.

The accent posed a problem in understanding the content. Otherwise, all the content and materials were superb.

Solid course. Lectures were sometimes jumbled and hard to understand, but overall it was well put-together.

The most important part of the course (implementing a solution to the Puzzle 15) is not explained well :(

We should be able to code in language of our choice, I had to struggle a bit since I didn't know python.

Very Fun course except that 15-Puzzle Quiz was really cruel to ask for (even for Honor certificate)

The only thing required is to allow learners to use any programming language instead of Python

I enjoyed the course. I would like more depth or more clear explanations from A Shen.
