Prerequisites and requirements

Undergraduate computer algorithm and data structures courses that cover O notation, time and space constraints; working knowledge of college level mathematics such as calculus, probability, and linear algebra. You will also need to be familiar with Python and be comfortable making modifications to large programs.

Please review the following questions, if you answer "no" to any of them you may want to refresh your knowledge or practice the required skills prior to taking the class:

  • Are you comfortable programming in Python, including IPython notebooks? If not, are you comfortable in learning a language within the first week of class?
  • Have you taken several classes that required intensive programming?
  • Have you taken algorithms and data structures courses?
  • Are you prepared to spend at least 9 hours a week on this class?

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
