The basis for education in the last millennium was “reading, writing, and arithmetic;” now it is reading, writing, and computing. Learning to program is an essential part of the education of every student, not just in the sciences and engineering, but in the arts, social sciences, and humanities, as well. Beyond direct applications, it is the first step in understanding the nature of computer science’s undeniable impact on the modern world. This course covers the first half of our book Computer Science: An Interdisciplinary Approach (the second half is covered in our Coursera course Computer Science: Algorithms, Theory, and Machines). Our intent is to teach programming to those who need or want to learn it, in a scientific context.

Really fun and challenging exercises! Had a great time solving them. The book site a lot more interesting problems and students should check it out.
Excellent course. Little hard for beginners, especially the software testing enviroment is very strict. But it is very straightforward course.
It was a beautiful course. I gained a ton of understanding of the structures of programming (especially OOP). And could become proficient in Java language, which is great.
Course is good but need to be more interactive and the content sometimes doesn't help in completing exams or assignments.
