The primary objective of this course is to introduce to students the conceptual foundations of computer programming in Python. Students will learn the basics of variables, strings, loops, functions, and basic expressions and statements and how to use Boolean logic to generate and execute conditional statements. Students will also learn the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and gain a preliminary understanding of objects, classes, and modules.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
identify logical constructs common to all programming languages
execute basic output commands and identify coding errors
differentiate between variables, expressions, statements, and functions
write lineal and variable expressions
understand how numbers and integers work
understand how operators and functions work
differentiate between objects, classes, and modules
write, debug, and repair errors in basic code fragments
Students complete the Introductory Python course in 4 three-hour sessions.
