Computational thinking is the process of approaching a problem in a systematic manner and creating and expressing a solution such that it can be carried out by a computer. But you don't need to be a computer scientist to think like a computer scientist! In fact, we encourage students from any field of study to take this course. Many quantitative and data-centric problems can be solved using computational thinking and an understanding of computational thinking will give you a foundation for solving problems that have real-world, social impact. In this course, you will learn about the pillars of computational thinking, how computer scientists develop and analyze algorithms, and how solutions can be realized on a computer using the Python programming language. By the end of the course, you will be able to develop an algorithm and express it to the computer by writing a simple Python program. This course will introduce you to people from diverse professions who use computational thinking to solve problems. You will engage with a unique community of analytical thinkers and be encouraged to consider how you can make a positive social impact through computational thinking....




Excellent course for beginners with enough depth, programming and computational theory to increase their computer science knowledge to a higher level. It builds a good foundation of how computers work



The course is very well-designed and it helped me develop understand how to apply computational thinking in solving various types of problems as well as acquire basic skills of programming in Python.

Great course and content. The responsiveness to questions and issues in the forum was not the best and could be improved. Overall the course was well structured, engaging, and insightful. Feel great to start coding in Python.

創建者 Yash K


This course is helpful for learn and understood solution of any problem although by this course we got some knowledge of python programming. But at some point I'm also stuck but I completed it successfully. Thank you penn.

Informative but the last assignment on Week 4 is misleading in that you can only submit the search function but the instructions say that you can test your code and the program will test it as well.

創建者 Nidhi A


IT is a very good course. That being said, week 4 should be spread over two weeks, and have more explanation in order to make the projects more manageable. I struggled with the last two projects.

創建者 Lluc R S


Useful course taught at an adequate rate. I recommend it for people who are interested in learning the basics of computational thinking, i.e. a systematic approach to problem-solving.

創建者 Elise N


The autograder can be somewhat of a pain and some of the solutions in the peer-review sections aren't the most efficient. Otherwise it helped teach the building blocks of coding.

創建者 Jessica K


Prior basic python knowledge will help with this course. Instructors were great. However the last week and its assignments need to tie in better with the overall course.

創建者 Lucas d H M


Very useful course with interesting and relatable examples. Both instructors speak in an easy manner and take proper time to explain the concepts.

創建者 Weilian X


Very nice course of people who have no experience with computer and programming.

The only thing I can complain is the peer-graded assignment.

創建者 Danielle J


Really great course. I found the wording of a couple homework problems to be confusing, but overall really enjoyed the course

創建者 Sophia X W


Not recommend for Python beginner. However, the first three chapter could give a foundation of computational thinking

創建者 Danrui L


The course is great, but the last 2 questions in the forth week are not friendly for the coding beginner.

創建者 Salahuddin P


It was very joyful throughout the course and i learned a lot but there is a problem, the voice is so low.

創建者 Priya C


The last 2 assignments had some issues in the results. Those need to be fixed to save us some time.

創建者 Laura M


Muy interesante, especialmente para aquellos que estamos iniciandonos en entender este mundillo.

創建者 Shalin M


The course is very well designed and taught, however the peer review system is a real pain.

創建者 Alex g


4.7 - an excellent class although be prepared for some challenging problems sets!

創建者 George W


Auto grader is too sensitive to small changes in the correct output

創建者 Tom F


Great introduction to computational thinking and coding.

創建者 Sun T


The auto-grade assignment in Week 4 should be improved.



Very good for good learners and beginers

創建者 Nirvan


The last assignment had a few bugs

創建者 Praveen K


The practice task is not enough.

創建者 ank j


Very educational. Thank you

創建者 chao w


great way to start with
