Course Overview

In today’s world where technology has become a part of everyone's life without us even noticing it, Computer science plays a very important role. Because of this computer science has become a field where there is a maximum requirement of the workforce with the workers having the maximum level of skill and knowledge about the same. Every candidate who chooses to become a great programmer in the future aims to sharpen his/ her skill in computer science, for which they need to have a strong hand in their mathematical skills. 

The main aim of mathematics is that it helps in imparting the students with the art of analysing, understanding and reading any problem that arises and helps them to come up with an effective solution before it hinders their work or the programme. It gives the candidate great analytical skills by teaching them how to utilize algorithms.

This shows how important mathematics is for the candidate who opts for computer science. To upgrade these skills Coursera has come up with the Mathematics for Computer science course which will make the candidate field ready for their future and help them understand computer science in a perfect way.
