Python Basics

Rated 2.8 out of 5

This course introduces the basics of Python 3 including conditional execution and iteration as control structures and strings and lists as data structures. You'll program an on-screen Turtle to draw pretty pictures. You'll also learn to draw reference diagrams as a way to reason about program executions which will help to build up your debugging skills.

The course has no prerequisites. It will cover Chapters 1-9 of the textbook Fundamentals of Python Programming which is the accompanying text (optional and free) for this course.

Sequences and Iteration
In week two you will use the lectures and the Runestone textbook to understand the basics of a few python data types - lists strings tuples - as well as a control structure - for loops. By the end of this week you will be able to write more complex programs that create drawings by incorporating for loops. Finally we will present the basics of an accumulation pattern to you which will be expanded on in each week for the rest of the course.

Booleans and Conditionals
In week three you will learn a new python data type - the boolean - as well as another control structure - conditional execution. Through the use of video lectures and the Runestone textbook you will learn what Binary Unary Nested and Chained Conditionals are as well as how to incorporate conditionals within an accumulation pattern.

Sequence Mutation and Accumulation Patterns
In week four we will present deeper knowledge on using lists strings and python objects in general. We will also cover how to use the accumulation pattern with lists and with strings. The final assignment will test your knowledge and skills through application much like previous assessments and assignments did though with a more difficult set of tasks now that you have learned the basics.
