An Update about the evolution of the

with one comment

I wanted to give everyone an update about what originally was going to just be a study group about Information Theory, but has expanded into being a full high school course on the Logic, Algebra, and Statistics of Computer and Data Science.

I decided to ditch using any books (and am primarily using Internet resources, especially good YouTube videos), but the class should prepare students to be able to read the books I talked about earlier.  It also will start all the way back with looking at logic (hence today’s cartoon), set theory, etc. to prep students for understanding Boolean algebra, and binary, which is the basis for Information Theory’s method of expressing information entropy.

So, if you are interested in being part of this course (even in an unofficial manner) please contact me right away, as I plan to have the first meeting this Thursday.

  1. Your idea fails because you are packing too much learning involving disparate areas of study that really need to each be studied on their own. It’s like putting a single course together to make someone a Medical Doctor in a semester. It doesn’t happen that way and in fact short circuits the aquiring of critical skills as well critical thinking.
