In this Python course, the aim will be to teach the students how to code basic applications in Python. It’ll start by showing students how to download and install Python and teach them the very basics such as data types, and variables. The course will be divided into modules/levels and each module will delve deeper into programming concepts.
There will be multiple assignments throughout the modules and a fun project at the end of each module so that the students can apply the knowledge they learned and create something tangible with their skills. These projects will include specialized calculators, text-based games, GUI-based games, etc.
They will be designed to make the students understand why they are learning how to program in Python and how it can be used to create useful applications that they can use outside of the classroom.
By the end of this course, students will have a solid understanding of programming concepts in Python and will have the ability to create basic applications. They will be ready to take a more advanced programming class later on.
*Students should bring a laptop to study this course.
