Preparation for first year in computer science

Much more recommended in my eyes is that you know the material you have learned in high school in the context of investigating functions, because if you do not remember it is good to enter the university more shaky, and a pity.

Also recommend starting to see a video of the CSU - from what I saw (and experienced) usually the main shock is there.

Algebra is not very difficult, but technical and long. Basically, I do not think it's necessary to prepare early, but if you really, really want to make sure you know the numbers are properly complex (so sure will repeat it).

In the introduction to the Mimic, familiarity with the language is always recommended, but I have no knowledge of Java so I can not help on this subject.

Set theory I did not learn :x From what I understood you should not come with prior knowledge of it.

That's all I can recommend. Successfully!

Try to give a little time to the unit as well, and preparation can make you drop a little more easily (again, depending on how rusty you are).

Hey, thank you both.

As I wrote before, I enrolled in a refresher course in mathematics starting next week with the simple goal of refreshing the material from high school that is important for first year, mainly to remove the rust and soften the entrance.

But I am one who always aspires to more, so I am interested in starting a basic course of learning in the first year of the refresher course (which is not particularly quick).

In the meantime, I have identified several topics for myself - JAVA, set theory and now according to your recommendation, too.

What is the most effective way to study calculus / group theory? To work with summaries or to watch videos (there are photocopied lessons on the Technion website)?

Watching videos is enough. You do not have to learn anything, just do not be in the market when you talk about things.

Even small things like mathematical symbols - consolidation / cutting, sum (big sigma), multiplication (pie), curly braces for a group, and so on.

I personally worked with video, but it's a matter of personal preference. At the Technion there are at least 4 different courses of the 1, so you have to find out what is right for you in terms of the material In any case, the 1 T has excellent video of the legendary Dr. Aviv Censor, 1 has a video by Prof. Ron Aharoni (the video is considered good as far as I know) - all three of them on YouTube and your choice.

Editing: I wrote the courses according to the difficulty level.

Following Uncle Moshe's response, if you decide to go for the video, I would recommend the first of the three (the "1 T" is the course that the students of the Technion have studied to this day, and the lecturer in the video is excellent).

Hey Gil. First of all I must say that you are great! Quick and quality answers, pleasure. Thank you.

For our discussion - I suppose you mean the set theory in your response.

I found the following video from the Mathematics Department at the Technion:

Is it the material needed?

How many videos do you expect to acquire more or less basic recognition of the material?

thanks to both of you.

I guess I'll choose Ch.

Here too the same question I asked to age - how many videos more or less should one expect to form a basic and sufficient recognition of the material?

Another thing - is it enough to see only the lectures, without practice?

As a general rule - you will see only a few chapters until it will start to be too difficult for you.

In the video you brought from the Technion on set theory, it is enough to see the 1,4,5,6 chapters only.

And if you still decide to see a little bit, then I think it's enough to get to the border setting (it's supposed to happen at the first 10 lectures). I think exercises are less critical at this stage.

Thanks!

Gil - you deliberately skipped chapters 2 and 3?

Another question:

With regard to calculus, I understood first that mathematics must be refreshed from high school.

What about set theory? Can you start diving into the subject? (Refreshing my math starts only at 18.8 and thought to give "push" until then).

The signs he mentioned are relevant to almost all mathematical courses, but they are simple and therefore sufficient to know their definition.

The course you have linked to is the set theory for mathematicians, which should soon bypass the material you will probably need in your course. Maybe you should look for another source.

There is also a video of the course "Logic and Set Theory for Computer Science", which unfortunately is not found on YouTube (but there is Summary excellent).

As for the videos, I think you should also practice, as I explained HERE (Third paragraph).

On the other hand, if you want just basic recognition of the material, then watching them will suffice (as it says here, it will save you a market when you encounter all sorts of subjects for the first time).

Hey mercenary!

I prefer to learn via video rather than text, I think much more effective.

So I will use an age recommendation that directed me to watch the mathematicians' course up to 6.

At this pre-school stage, I think I'll just be satisfied with watching. The idea is to minimize as much as possible the market of the beginning and have an idea of ​​basic things that will help me in the beginning.

I will probably do the learning itself during the semester (including exercises).

I deliberately skipped, the relationship calculation irrelevant.

Look at the first chapters of the CSU, linear - these are first semester courses so that they also touch the beginning of the base, which is why you can follow it more slowly and if there is something you do not know (high school stuff you lack), you can search Wikipedia or any source Other.

Great. In principle, I signed up for a refresher course so he is supposed to complete the material from high school.

With regard to JAVA - the university instructor at Link I brought earlier (HERE) Likely to start?
