Courses

Coding (Fall)

Coding provides an introduction to computational thinking and algorithms logic by means of instruction in the programming language Python. Python is a very accessible and powerful language that is commonly used in scientific computing, online security, and data manipulation applications. Each week students will program scripts that apply Python terms and procedures and there will be a final project that encompasses the lessons from the course. This one semester course is intended for students who have taken the Computing Essentials course at SAS or who have had experience in coding in any language.
