Introduction to computing with Python for engineering and scientific applications

These Jupyter notebooks provide a self-study introduction to computing with Python. They have been developed for the computing course in Part IA (Michaelmas Term) of the Engineering Tripos at University of Cambridge. This is a first computing course for undergraduate students.

The notebooks can be freely used, shared and modified. See the copyright and license notice below.

Viewing and running

Copies of the notebooks are hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud service:

https://notebooks.azure.com/garth-wells/libraries/CUED-IA-Computing-Michaelmas

It is recommended that you use the notebooks via the above link.

Note that when 'viewing' the rendered notebooks on the Azure service there may be some display artefacts. For the best experience, 'clone' the library to use the notebooks in a Jupyter environment.

Getting started

Each notebook covers a topic, with a number of exercises for completion at the end of each notebook. Start with the notebook [Part IA Michaelmas Term computing](00 Part IA Michaelmas Term computing.ipynb). Model solutions to the exercises are available - contact Garth N. Wells to request the solutions.

Cambridge students/staff: When prompted to sign in to the Azure notebook service, use your University of Cambridge email address, e.g. crsid@cam.ac.uk.

Others: Create an account on https://notebooks.azure.com to use the notebooks interactively.

Accompanying exercises

For each notebook there are a set of exercises in the directory Exercises for completion at end the of each Activity notebook.
