First Steps In Python (Online)

USD $240

In this introductory course for beginners, students will learn the basics of coding in Python. The course will focus on learning Python syntax, structure and parameters and then use the knowledge and skills to build two projects

 

Using the BSD Online learning platform, students will be guided through learning about Python basics like, variables, data types, conditional logic, math operators and loops. The first part of the course is designed to be self-guided with activities and practice with syntax and using the console. Then students will build a birth-date-to-now calculator and an encoder/decoder.

 

They will end the course with a tech portfolio of the projects they’ve created throughout the course, and will be able to use their new skills to move onto more complex projects in the future.

Explore: Students will develop a fundamental understanding of the basic programming concepts in Python by working through a progression of 18 lessons and two projects.

Learn: Students will be self-guided through a series of lessons and guided projects that teach the fundamentals of Python. After completing the lessons and guided projects, students will also learn how to add further customizations to their projects in sandbox. 

Create: 

Students will create 4 unique projects that put their Python skills to use. 

  • Rock, paper, scissors app
  • Countdown timer app
  • birth-date-to-now calculator
  • secret message encoder/decoder
