Python lesson plan: Chapter 4

Hi there!

Here is the weekly lesson plan for the third week.

Objective :

Read chapter four (4) “Case Study: Interface Design” of the book “Think Python”. My goal is to understand and link the new terminology.

Readings :

Think Python

How to Think Like a Computer Scientist

by Allen B. Downey

Chapter 4
Case Study: Interface Design

Incorporation :

The format of this chapter is a case study. So, it is time to play around with all the concepts we have seen so far.

Attending meetup meetings about Python and hang out with people who love to code has been very useful.

Assessment :

Exercises: 4.1 – 4.4

Python lesson plan: Chapter 3

Hi there!

Here is the weekly lesson plan for the third week.

Objective :

I want to read the third chapter “Functions” of the book “Think Python”. My goal is to understand and link the new terminology into my daily life.

Readings :

Chapter 3: Functions

Incorporation :

At first, I could not see any remote link between the new terminology and my daily activities or conversations. However, with some practice, it is actually fun to see where the new terminology fits in.

Attending meetup meetings about Python and hang out with people who love to code helps.

Assessment :

Exercises: 3.1 – 3.5

Python lesson plan: Chapter 2

Hi there!

Since my last post, I got more acquainted with WordPress and I got sidetrack.

Nevertheless, I am back on track with Python!

Here is my second weekly lesson plan.

Objective :

I want to read the second chapter of the book “Think Python”. My goal is to understand and incorporate the new terminology into my daily life.

Readings :

Think Python

How to Think Like a Computer Scientist

by Allen B. Downey

Chapter 2: Variables, expressions and statements

Incorporation :

This time, my goal is to track the times I incorporated new terms.

I miss my written notes where I can incorporate as much graphs and color as I want. Until I find a widget/pluggin/any other solution, I will prepare them by hand and then upload them.

Also, I attended a meetup session with PyLadies NYC. I was the only one not knowing how to code much. I must say that the founder and organizers were very helpful and kind. It was very inspiring.

The founder demonstrated that we could modify a picture data base and give them an 80’s twist.

I am looking forward to play with Python and create art.

Assessment :

Exercises: 2.1 – 2.4
