Class experience

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 Offered
There 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 Offered
Progress 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.
Grades Offered
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).
