Introduction to scientific programming is intended for students with little or no programming experience. It aims to provide students with an understanding of the role computation can play in solving problems and to help students, regardless of their major, feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs that allow them to accomplish useful goals. The class uses the Python3 programming language. The classes span topics from introduction to datatypes, data manipulation up to scaling of algorithms and object oriented programming.

We go along the famous MIT course 6.0001. Prerecorded online lectures (link via MLU cloud) with accompanied live discussions via discord will be available - right afterwards exercise problems can be solved with accompanied discussions via discord. Every 2nd week a problem set is uploaded where a short computational problem has to be solved and sent in as homework to consolidate the topics worked through.

An digital exam will complete this course.
