Description

If you're new to programming and want to learn JavaScript, this course is for you. In Solve Math Problems with JavaScript, you will learn core programming concepts such as variables, iteration, branching, and functions; then apply these skills to build interactive web pages that solve advanced high school level math problems. This project-based course works through nine problems of increasing difficulty, such as calculating factorials, simulating rolling dice, and estimating area under a polynomial curve. Each lesson covers the core math and programming concepts, then works through the solution step-by-step. This course is ideal for people who like math and want to learn programming or web development. By the end of this course, you will have a basic understanding of programming in Java and you'll have the skills needed to move onto learning more complex programming topics.

Course Overview
Hi. My name is Terry Toy, and welcome to Solve Math Problems with Javascript. In this course you will build interactive webpages that solve advanced high school or introductory college level math problems, such as calculating factorials, simulating rolling dice or estimating the area under a polynomial curve. I've been programming for over 15 years, and have experience in both business applications and embedded systems. I've also taught high school advanced algebra math courses. There is an obvious connection between math and programming, so I hope to join these concepts together in this course. After learning the basics this project based course will work through nine different math problems of increasing difficulty. We'll work through each problem step-by-step, so let's get started, and build our first web page together.
