Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to construct basic Python games while learning about variables, lists, loops and if statements.
I love teaching programming using fun and interesting examples because it helps students go farther than learning hard to contextualize concepts. Understanding what we are doing and why means that students will be able to apply algebraic concepts (like x+y) having understood examples like (red bike + blue bike) in a way that has context and meaning. 
Students should work on their own code each week using the examples provided, or a new idea of their own. Each module should take about an hour to work through and homework should take about the same, but can take longer or shorter, depending on the interest of the learners and how much time they want to put into building their own fun games.
We will be using Repl.it, an interactive coding environment, which makes it easy to code, share and collaborate. While there are many other places that students are able to code, this is the only resource we will be using. The site is free to sign up, and makes it easy to code in Python, directions will be provided with the first module.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Feedback is provided for all assignments.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
