Course Overview

This course aims to teach everyone the basics of programming computers using Python. We cover the basics of how one constructs a program from a series of simple instructions in Python. The course has no pre-requisites and avoids all but the simplest mathematics. Anyone with moderate computer experience should be able to master the materials in this course. This course will cover Chapters 1-5 of the textbook “Python for Everybody”. Once a student completes this course, they will be ready to take more advanced programming courses. This course covers Python 3.

Course Content

Part 1: Why We Program?

These are the course-wide materials as well as the first part of Chapter One where we explore what it means to write programs.

Part 2: Installing and Using Python

In this module you will set things up so you can write Python programs.

Part 3: Why We Program (continued)

In the first chapter we try to cover the “big picture” of programming so you get a “table of contents” of the rest of the course.

Related Topics

  • Writing Paragraphs of Code
  • Demonstration: Doing the “Hello World” Assignment

Part 4: Variables and Expressions

In this chapter we cover how a program uses the computer’s memory to store, retrieve and calculate information.

Related Topics

  • Expressions

Part 5: Conditional Code

In this section we move from sequential code that simply runs one line of code after another to conditional code where some steps are skipped. It is a very simple concept – but it is how computer software makes “choices”.

Related Topics

  • Conditional Statements

Part 6: Functions

We will learn about what functions are and how we can use them.

Related Topics

  • Using Functions
  • Building Functions

Part 7: Loops and Iteration

Loops and iteration complete our four basic programming patterns. Loops are the way we tell Python to do something over and over. Loops are the way we build programs that stay with a problem until the problem is solved.
