Episode Description

Season 1 pilot episode of Foundations, a Copernicus-level series.

In this first episode, Dr. Foland discusses the beauty of mathematics and how modern computers can enable us to apply mathematical skills to real-world problems. In this season, we will be exploring the Python programming language. However, before we begin, it is important to first build a firm foundation in good programming practice. It all starts with a systematic process known as “computational thinking”.
