# Mathematics for Computer Science

Por: Coursera . en: ,

• Number bases - binary
• In this week, we will cover the key concepts: Place value and Number systems. You will learn about the notion of number bases, how to do operate in binary.
• Number bases - other bases
• In this week, we will extend the place value and number systems to Octal, Hexadecimal and any other bases. You will also be introduced to the usefulness of hexadecimal in computer science.
• Modular arithmetic
• In this week, we will cover the key concept of congruence modulo an integer. You will also be introduced to the usefulness of congruence and modular arithmetic operations in computer science.
• Sequences
• In this week, we will cover the key concept of number sequences. You will look into more detail at a special family of sequences, called progressions, and study arithmetic and geometric progressions.
• Series
• In this week, we will cover the key concept of number series, building on number sequences. You will look into more detail at a special family of series arising from arithmetic and geometric progressions. You will look at expression summations of sequences using a compact form with a summation symbol.
• Introduction to Graph Sketching and Kinematics
• In this week, we will cover the key concept of coordinate system, functions and graphical representation of functions, and kinematics. You will look at the example of modelling motion.
