Teaching of computing to mathematics students: Programming and discrete mathematics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper describes a course that has been running for over nine years, teaching Programming to large number of Mathematics students. The distinctive features of it include the fact that it was designed as part of a wholesale curriculum review (rather than being a pre-packaged course), that its design took into account the nature of the syllabus and what else the students would be using programming for, both in the rest of their course and beyond, and that the course is more than “just” a programming course.
