Logic Gates are the building blocks of Digital Systems, allowing computers and other devices to carry out complicated operations like calculating the 50th digit of π, re-landing rockets in the middle of the ocean, delivering packages within minutes through the use of drones, and mapping the unknown physical universe and all of its wonders. Come take part in this invigorating course, where you'll learn to hack logic gates and truth tables, which are critical skills for any engineer. No prior knowledge or study is required! From the ground up, you'll develop your understanding on what are logic gates and truth tables. Come learn and practice how to represent combinational logic functions as truth tables, as Boolean expressions including various canonical forms, and as logic circuits, and how to quickly translate between these representations.

Come also learn about computer number systems! When we type words onto a computer, it will translate them into numbers. In fact, to a computer, all information is written as series of 1s and 0s. Computer number systems are how we represent numbers in a computer system architecture. Number systems are one of the most fundamental concepts that computer scientists must learn. It’s an important step for anyone who wants to become a computer scientist or programmer. So, through this course, we will also introduce you to the number systems that are essential for a computer scientist. We’ll take a deep dive into the binary, hexadecimal, and octal number systems and how to convert between them all!
