CSCI 101 is our Introduction to Computer Science course. It is a 3-credit hour **breadth** CS course (NOT a programming course) that is required or optional for many majors (including CS, MechE, and EE). We cover a number of topics in this course, e.g., binary numbers, Boolean logic and gates, circuit design, data compression, machine language, computer hardware, Assembly, operating systems, networking, the Internet protocols, cybersecurity, data science, machine learning, and robotics. You need to know more than just the definition of these topics to pass the challenge/proficiency exam. Example review questions for the exam are available here: http://cs.mines.edu/Courses/csci101/CSCI101-ReviewQuestions.pdf.
Are you planning to take the CSCI 102 challenge/proficiency exam on date listed previously? (Note: the exam will require you to write some Python code.) *
CSCI 102 is our Introduction to Computer Science LAB. CSCI 102 (a Python programming course) covers variables, types, strings, conditionals, loops, functions, and I/O. It is a 1-credit hour programming course in Python that is (1) especially valuable for those who've never programmed and (2) required for some majors (e.g., MechE) . Students can do both the 101 and 102 exams.
