Introduction to Programming with Python, Part 3 FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE
A college-prep introductory course in computer programming. Part 3 of a 3 course sequence! Builds on all the skills from Parts 1 and 2. As a FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE course.
This is the third in the series of Introduction to Programming with Python courses. It will pick up right where the second class left off. Course Objective This course is a continuation of the problem-solving and programming methodologies that are fundamental to the study of computer science. Students gain considerable experience with fundamental language constructs and types (classes), such as expressions, decisions, iteration, functions, structures, and strings. This course (and those...
Course Outcomes • Students will become proficient and comfortable with problem-solving with respect to programming. • Students will understand the basic methodologies of programming in both the procedural and object oriented environments. • Students will gain understanding on the syntax and constructs of the Python programming language. • Students will be able to explain the concept of objects/classes and be able to represent real world events in class form. • Students will become proficient in the following programming constructs: expressions, decisions, iteration, functions, structures and strings.
I have a degree in computer science and have been teaching all levels of programming and software engineering at the college level for 20 years and have worked in the industry for the same amount of time. This particular course (Introduction to Programming) has always been my favorite to teach. My goal is to give the students an experience that will prepare them to be successful in a Computer Science based college program. I love programming because there are multiple ways to solve a problem. Computers only do what you tell them to do - whether you realize you're telling them to do something or not!
Weekly programming assignments will be posted at the end of each class. Students will be expected to work on the assignment and post it before the next class. The instructor will be available throughout the week to help along the way!
Students will be provided with weekly PowerPoint decks that will contain all the information they need.
This is a very hands-on course. Students will be asked to try out the Python programming principles AS they are being taught in the class. After each class a lab project will be assigned that guides the student through creating complete and proper running programs that will be submitted to the instructor before the next class. The instructor will interact with the students throughout the week to guide them through these labs as they share, review and reassess each other's code.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.

I love to teach! I love the look on a student's face when they "get it" or when they realize how much they love (or are allowed to enjoy) what they are learning! I have been teaching Mathematics, Computer Science (programming) and Theatre...
