Software Testing (CS258)
When writing software, destruction can be just as valuable as creation. Learn how to catch bugs and break software as you discover different testing methods that will help you build better software.
Unit 1: Introduction
How to become a great software tester
Unit 2: Domains, Ranges, Oracles, and Kinds of Testing
How to think about the different elements of software testing
Unit 3: Code Coverage
How to find parts of a program that need more testing
Unit 4: Random Testing
How to automatically generate test cases that break code in unexpected ways
Unit 5: Advanced Random Testing
How to engineer a sophisticated random test case generator
Unit 6: Consequences
How to deal with lots of bugs, how to take a big input that triggers a bug and make it smaller, how to report a bug, and more!
Unit 7: Conclusion
Summary and tournament results
Ever played the Kevin Bacon game? This class will show you how it works by giving you an introduction to the design and analysis of algorithms that enable you to discover how individuals are connected.
Unit 1: A Social Network Magic Trick
Becoming familiar with algorithm analysis
Unit 2: Growth Rates in Social Networks
Using mathematical tools to analyze how things are connected
Unit 3: Basic Graph Algorithms
Finding the quickest route to Kevin Bacon
Unit 4: It’s Who You Know
Keeping track of your best friends using heaps
Unit 5: Strong and Weak Bonds
Working with social networks with edge weights.
Unit 6: Hardness of Network Problems
Exploring what it means for a social network problem to be harder than other.
Unit 7: Conclusion
Using your knowledge
Intro to Physics (PH100)
Study physics abroad in Europe — virtually! Learn the basics of physics on location in Italy, the Netherlands and the UK, by answering some of the discipline’s major questions from over the last 2000 years.
Unit 1: How can we measure the circumference
of the Earth?
Basics of geometry and trigonometry
Unit 2: How do objects move?
Data analysis and kinematics
Unit 3: What causes motion?
Forces, acceleration, and Newton’s Laws
Unit 4: How can we use motion?
Work, energy, and simple machines
Unit 5: How can we determine our longitude at sea?
Simple harmonic motion
Unit 6: What is electricity?
Charge and electric fields
Unit 7: What is left to discover?
Modern physics and open questions
Introduction to Statistics (ST101)
Statistics is about extracting meaning from data. In this class, we will introduce techniques for visualizing relationships in data and systematic techniques for understanding the relationships using mathematics.
Unit 1: Visualizing relationships in data
Seeing relationships in data and predicting based on them; dealing with noise
Unit 2: Processes that generates data
Random processes; counting, computing with sample spaces; conditional probability; Bayes Rule
Unit 3: Processes with a large number of events
Normal distributions; the central limit theorem; adding random variables
Unit 4: Real data and distributions
Sampling distributions; confidence intervals; hypothesis tests; outliers
Unit 5: Systematically understanding relationships
Least squares;residuals; inference
Unit 6: Understanding more complex relationships
Transformation; smoothing; regression for two or more variables, categorical variables
Unit 7: Where to go next
Statistics vs machine learning; what to study next; where statistics is used Final exam
Logic & Discrete Mathematics (CS221)
“Discrete mathematics, ” also known as “combinatorics, ” is a broad term. In this course, learn the basics of Boolean algebra and discrete mathematics with an emphasis on their connections with computer science.
Unit 1: Induction
Techniques in enumerative combinatorics, including the counting of lattice paths, Pascal-like triangles, and the principle of inclusion-exclusion (Moebius inversion)
Unit 2: Sets
Basic combinatorics of finite sets, including Hall’s Marriage Theorem, Sperner’s Lemma, elements of matroid theory and results about cutsets in graphs
Unit 3: Propositional Logic
Elementary propositional logic
Unit 4: Posets and Lattices
The basics of posets and lattices as a unifying theme
Unit 5: Graph Theory
Elements of graph theory, including results about trees and planar graphs
Unit 6: Number Theory
Some elementary number theory leading up to the Euclidean algorithm for computing greatest common divisors and modular arithmetic
Unit 7: Review
An overview of the course material
