This course will introduce students to the basics of programming in Python - one of the fastest growing in popularity programming languages. Python is widely used in business, finance, economics, science and math. Students will learn how to set up a Python development environment and write computer programs that solve simple yet practical problems, such as solving quadratic equations or systems of linear equations. This knowledge and experience will provide a strong foundation for students to start developing more advanced apps, such as video games or machine learning algorithms or mobile apps (iOS/Android).
