ive been brousing computer science classes and heres the descripiton of one I found:
Refer to computer science service course restrictions.
Fourteen hours of laboratory/lecture/discussion per week
for eight weeks. Prerequisites: High school algebra.
Introduction to computer programming, emphasizing

Ive had High school algebra but anyone have any clue as to what "Introduction to computer programming, emphasizing
symbolic computation and functional programming style." means. I know almost all of the C++ language and I've also learned a bit of windows api, MFC, IO(a very little bit), direct X, and allegro for more information about the course go to summer.berkeley.edu the course is called intro to Symbolic programming.
