01. Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science

“Computational thinking involves solving problems, designing systems, and understanding human behavior, by drawing on the concepts fundamental to computer science. Computational thinking includes a range of mental tools that reflect the breadth of the field of computer science.”

Jeannette Wing, “Computational Thinking”

You can fully harness the power of data even if you are not a programmer, but you must learn basic concepts of computational thinking and data science.  In this course you will learn to think like a computer scientist and to understand the methods of data science.

In this lesson, you will learn:

  • What is computational thinking
  • Computational thinking for reasoning and analysis
  • What is data science
  • Data scientists
  • The context of data science
