Python Fundamentals

Algebra

For Ages 12 - 17

course_description

Python Fundamentals introduces students to more advanced Python concepts, building on the experience they have gained in the intermediate level courses. Each lesson a core Python concept is introduced and explained through a series of exercises. Short assignments and exercises outside of class build proficiency. For the last two weeks, students work on a capstone project that pulls together all of the concepts and coding techniques that they now have in their toolbox.

 

Course worksheets are available that introduce each concept and how it is applied. These worksheets have been developed specifically for middle school students. They provide clear explanations of important concepts using non-technical language. This course is equivalent to a CS100 college level course and is modelled on courses at Cornell and Dartmouth universities.

What Our Parents Say

Best coding program for kids in USA

UCode has the best coding program for kids in USA. They also very flexible with schedules and price. Teachers are knowledgeable and very kind to kids, they have lots of patients on all the manner. About 5 years more advanced in age groups ,than a private school computer program class.If America visited Mars, than your kid need as a minimum, : to learn computer skills !

My 11 year old daughter and 10 year old son LOVE THIS!

We just signed up a month ago and they look forward to their weekly session. Two hours of computer programming each week and if we can't make it, the hours roll over. They have a bunch of different platforms for the kids to work on with plenty of supervision

Introduction

Let's start by writing our very first program. It's a very short program that displays “hello w. We then introduce operators and comments in Python.

Comparisions

In this Unit we introduce Comparison Operators and If Then Statements and how to use them to control the flow of our code by checking for certain conditions.

Boolean Operators

In this unit, we're going to learn more about BOOLEAN OPERATORS, they can help us combine different expressions in different ways, making our code cleaner and efficient.

While Loops

In this unit, we're going to learn about LOOPS. LOOPS are a technique that repeats execution of the same piece of code, instead of writing this piece of code over and over and over again in our program.
