In this course we will learn how to program in python from the ground up, using a cloud based programming platform. We will divide each class between discussing methods and topics in programming to actually building programs ourselves. We will cover the basics of programming, learn about variables, and ways to store and use information in lists, dictionaries, tuples, and other structures. We will also learn about conditional statements to sort data, and user input and loops. The course will...
In this semester length course, we are going to cover Python programming from the very beginning and work our way towards more complex and intricate programs. This is a great course for those with programming experience or students that are starting from scratch. Our goal is to introduce various programming methods and techniques as we build examples that have real-world applications. Programming is a superpower for the future, and students will look at many different ways to interact with the world, gather and analyze data, manipulate various elements using programming, and ultimately gain a deep insight into the Python programming language and how to build programs that do something. This course is divided into two parts, the first part is composed of 6 modules on the basics of Python programming, which will go over data structures and various types of programs, which will serve as a refresher for those who have python experience, or an introduction for those who are new to programming. No knowledge of programming is required to get started with this course, our goal is to work through the tools we need in the first part of the course so we can experiment with amazing projects in the latter 14 modules.
We will be using the Automate the Boring Stuff with Python, 2nd Edition Practical Programming for Total Beginners book by Al Sweigart book in the course. November 2019, 592 pp. ISBN-13: 9781593279929 We will be using Repl.it for the majority of the module, some modules may require the student to use Python locally (for example, some elements like opening the web browser can only be done locally), directions and detailed instructions will be provided.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
