COSC 100 - Computers in the Arts and Sciences

Introduces students to the inner workings of computers, the Internet, the Web. Students learn to create a well-designed web page; build a website; perform regression analysis; analyze a small social network; etc. Students spend two weeks on the notion of data modeling, build simple but useful financial models, and in the process learn the basics of financial literacy. There are several lab assignments and two group projects, one to build a website on the subject of choice, the other to analyze a social network. No computer experience is required. The course does not count toward the major.
