BEGINNER PYTHON 102
Further Develop your Child’s Structured Thinking Process with Python
This course furthers your child’s understanding of Python and computer programming. It introduces concepts such as Functions, Lists, and Strings. Students will create programs to model Mathematical simulations. Improving code efficiency will play a huge part in this module.
And though we use mathematics as a way to help learn Python and improve math skills, there are no math requirements. We will scale the difficulty level of math based on each students abilities.
This powerful pairing of Math and Programming not only allows your child to build a solid foundation in both but also most importantly, to understand how Math is applicable in the Real World.
Students who have completed this course are encouraged to go on to pursue Python 100P: Python Perfect which is a critical lab practice component.
