Coding With Python for Beginners (Flexible)
Students will obtain an introduction to coding with live code! They will also be given the resources and knowledge to start their own coding projects.
In this class, students will explore the possibilities with programming. This is an introduction to help learners develop an understanding of logic and critical thinking when it comes to code. Topics that will be covered include variables, data types, containers, functions, modules, debugging, and more! I will be writing code real time and explaining the step-by-step process of what and why I'm doing what I am. My teaching philosophy is to get learners involved with the learning rather than...
This class is taught in English.
Learn the basics of coding and programming using the Python language. Students will learn how to code, create algorithms and solve problems using Python. They will gain a solid understanding of fundamental concepts of the language like data types, variables, functions and modules. Additionally, students will be provided the opportunity for a hands-on experience of coding. Overall, the goal is to give students a strong foundation in programming and the ability to continue learning and growing as a coder.
I began programming in graduate school where I used Python for data organization and visualization. Today I continue to use it with at my job with the U.S. Geological Survey for the same purposes and for mathematical modeling.
Homework OfferedHomework that consists of completing code will be assigned weekly. While optional, it will be recommended as it provides feedback on learning comprehension. It's also a good opportunity to ask the teacher any questions they might run into while trying to solve a problem. Homework typically takes less than an hour but that can be varied depending on the students' business or desire for more practice.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedThe learner's progress is informally assessed with questions. Occasional feedback can be given if parents request.
Either an Anaconda Python installation or Google Collab are recommended for coding along with the instructor. Both are free. Instructions for this will be given during the first class. Anaconda Python is a download which allows for more functionality (with video games for example). Google Colab can run in a browser and requires a Google account (similar to Google Docs). It requires almost no set-up.

It is a backup resource, just in case students have trouble downloading Anaconda Python.
