title Introduction to Programming (in Python) term Fall 2018 credits 4 time Tues/Thu 10-11:30am level Introductory faculty Jim Mahoney repeat no, cannot be repeated for credit prereq none
Python Programming: An Introduction to Computer Science by John Zelle, 3rd edition, ISBN 1590282752
This is a first class in computer programming, and as such a foundation class for further work in computer science. Much as a competency with English grammar is required for writing, an understanding of programming is required to for nearly all intermediate and advanced work in computer science.
A similar course is offered every Fall, though the language chosen varies from year to year. Python is a modern, elegant, high level scripting language, used for scientific programming, web servers, and all sorts of other things. It's been one of the most popular programming languages at Marlboro.
Topics will include program design, boolean logic, debugging, input/output, object oriented programming, as well as a variety of basic computer skills. Expect weekly practice problems (for a single term grade based on how many are turned in), a small midterm project, and a final project.
We'll be following the text pretty closely, so check it out for more details.
