CSE5P: Introduction to Programming in Python

Introduces programming in Python, a high-level programming language used in the physical and social sciences and for Internet scripting. Students learn programming and documentation skills, as well as algorithmic problem-solving, coding, and debugging methodologies. Students write programs to solve sample problems drawn from a wide range of disciplines, primarily in the sciences. No prior programming experience is required, but a mathematics background at the pre-calculus level is assumed. This course and courses 5C and 5J cover similar concepts, but use different programming languages. Students may not receive credit for course 5P after receiving credit for course 11, 12A, or Computer Engineering 13. (General Education Code(s): IN, MF - Mathematical and Formal Reasoning)
