This tutorial will introduce you to Python, a general-purpose, object-oriented interpreted language you can use for countless standalone projects or scripting applications.
Now that you've completed the lesson on Python syntax, let's see if you can put your newfound skills to use. In this project, you'll create a simple calculator that determines the price of a meal after tax and tip.
This course will introduce you to strings and console output in Python, including creating string literals, calling a variety of string methods, and using the "print" keyword.
This project is a follow up to Unit 2: Strings and Console input and will give you practice with the concepts introduced in that course.
In this course, we'll learn how to create programs that generate different outcomes based on user input!
In this project we'll put together all of the Python skills we've learned so far including string manipulation and branching. We'll be building a Pyg Latin translator. (That's Pig Latin for Python Programmers!)
A function is a reusable section of code written to perform a specific task in a program. We gave you a taste of functions in Unit 3; here, you'll learn how to create your own.
Hard day at work? Rough day at school? Take a load off with a programming vacation!
Lists and dictionaries are powerful tools you can use to store, organize, and manipulate all kinds of information.
Let's manage our own supermarket and buy some goods along the way!
Use what you've learned so far to manage your own class.
Now that you've learned about lists, let's turbo-charge them with functions.
In this project we will make a simplified version of the classic board game Battleship! We'll use functions, lists, and conditionals to make our game.
Loops allow you to quickly iterate over information in Python. In this lesson, we'll cover two types of loop: 'while' and 'for'.
You know a lot of Python now. Let's do some practice problems!
Your students just took their first test. It's time to see how everyone did. Let's write a program to compute the mean, variance, and standard deviation of the test scores.
In this lesson, we'll cover some of the more complex aspects of Python, including iterating over data structures, list comprehensions, list slicing, and lambda expressions.
Bitwise operations directly manipulate bits—patterns of 0s and 1s. Though they can be tricky to learn at first, their speed makes them a useful addition to any programmer's toolbox.
Classes are a crucial part of object-oriented programming (OOP). In this course, we'll explain what classes are, why they're important, and how to use them effectively.
Make your own Car and learn how to driveCar()!
