This course will be taught entirely online through synchronous zoom sessions and Moodle. If you cannot make the synchronous sessions sue to time zone or other constrains, asynchronous options will be offered. In the synchronous sessions, we will be working through Python-based problems through class activities and small-group based problem solving.
