Description

6.0001 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming in Python 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 Python 3.5 programming language. *** Correction for Lecture_02_exercise_04: The right answer should be print "You got out of the Lost Forest!" ***

In this lecture, Dr. Bell introduces the theory of computation and explains some aspects of computational thinking. Programming languages are discussed, with an emphasis on basic Python syntax and data structures.
In this lecture, Prof. Grimson explains basic search and sort algorithms, including linear search, bisection search, bubble sort, selection sort, and merge sort.
In this lecture, Prof. Grimson continues discussing different classes of algorithmic complexity, including logarithmic complexity, polynomial complexity, and exponential complexity.
In this lecture, Prof. Grimson introduces algorithmic complexity, a rough measure of the efficiency of a program. He then discusses Big "Oh" notation and different complexity classes.
