Python Programming | Beginner | 10 Week Flex | 10 Weeks of Code
Sidney - KidsSpeakCode
In this 10-week flex course, students will learn the basics of python programming using fun and interesting examples. #builder
In this course, we will learn how to program in Python from the ground up. Each module will have an in-depth video explaining the concepts and working through building programs and examples of concepts. From the very beginning steps into programming (the basics of Python) to more complicated programs, we will build up the skills to make our own programs and learn to code. Weekly modules will cover different topics, and scaffold skills so we are able to build more complex programs and think of...
By the end of the course, students will learn the basics of programming in python, and be able to create programs that take user input and process it. In addition, students will learn how to store and manipulate data, and build programs that respond to various conditions. By the end of the course, students should have a good idea of how to program in python with a focus on being able to solve practical problems using programming.
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.
Homework OfferedThere is a weekly homework assignment to apply practice the topics we cover in each lesson each week and build code combining concepts. Along with the videos and handouts, students receive video feedback posted to the classroom on their assignments to ensure they are on track with each module. Video feedback will be posted for the module, and students share and discuss their code and what approach they used to do the homework.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedProgress is assessed though feedback on homework. At the end of each module, students work on an assignment which is returned with video feedback. This should help learners understand where they are, and to help sharpen their coding skills from the very basics to more advanced topics.
We will be using the CodeWithMu program to build and run our code in the course. This program is free and open source, and is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Learners share the .py files they create by attaching them to their messages. This course involves typing and a computer (this software will not work on a Chromebook or an iPad).
Welcome! We offer fun and engaging social science and technology classes. You can use technology to do some pretty amazing things, and it's a lot less scary than it seems—our courses range from social science (like sociology and marketing) to...
