Problem solving Aspects and Python Programming
The first part of the course cover problem solving aspects. Problem solving is the most important skill in computer science. To become a good computer programmer, the student has to acquire problem solving skills. Most of the time, the emphasis is on learning a programming language rather than on inculcating the problem solving skills. Hence, the students feel that programming hard. The difficulty faced by students in understanding the real world problems and developing computer solutions has motivated us to offer this course. This course is designed for use by freshmen students taking their first course in programming. It deals with the techniques needed to practice computational thinking, the art of using computers to solve problems and the ways the computers can be used to solve problems.
The Second part covers Python Programming. Python is ranked as the 6th popular language by Stack Overflow Developer Survey and ranked as the 4th most wanted technology of the year 2016.
It is the 2nd most popular programming language in the world based on the Popularity of Programming Language Index. Python is used in many domains fields from web and game development to machine learning, AI, scientific computing and academic research. It is easy to learn as a first language. Hence, the course covers the basic of Python Programming in detail and the advanced concepts in a lighter way. The course would definitely kindle the students’ interest for further exploration
