Comprehensive teaching power points (which can also be used for student independent learning) on learning and mastering the Python programming language. Carefully developed for pedagogical success and tried and tested in the classroom!
Includes starters, discussion topics, suggested videos, interesting facts, suggested homework and research projects to follow from the lesson, tutorials, code and practical tasks and challenges (with solutions) for students to try!
Python Programming made easy and engaging.
Each Power Point also includes cross-curricular topics / interesting facts relating to computing and other subjects (such as the DNA CODE, Artificial Intelligence, Is the universe Digital? etc).
Lesson 3(b): Covers an introduction to FOR Loops, the difference between While and For Loops, Practice predictions (with answers) to see if students can guess the output of code, practical examples including a holiday checker (using lists and for loops) and the beginnings of an Arithmetic quiz (using a random function and for loop to generate questions). Students can copy code and extend based on the challenges provided.
Discussion (is the universe Binary?) Suggested Videos, Suggested research project and HW.
A useful lesson (complete with starters and engagement activities) to get students inspired, engaged and started on Programming in Python. Can be used right from Year 7 to Year 12-Year 13 as a starter lesson for those that have not programmed in Python before. (Key Focus: FOR LOOPS)
