A useful single document to help teach pupils (and teachers) about String Manipulation in Python.
This handout helps pupils and teacher brush up on your Python skills and works well as a handy reference guide.
This document includes an explanation of how to manipulate strings in Python and gives examples of code with easy to follow explanations. It also includes a single page of 7 challenges for students to complete which is ideal for photocopying and distributing to students to work through and practice their new skills. There is even a suggested answer to each of the challenges in case you get stuck.
This document is a quick and helpful reference guide which works together well with the others in the series “Tuples, Lists and Directories ”, “One-Dimensional Arrays” and “Two-Dimensional Arrays, Lists and Directories”. Together these document give you a good grounding in understanding what can be a complicated area of programming for pupils to master.
