No prior experience with programming is necessary for taking this course. Only basic math such as addition, subtraction, division, and taking the average is needed. The course will teach students to program a computer using input, output, selection, and repetitions. Python is the easiest programming language to learn. Learn to program using easy to grasp techniques that build upon each other. By the end of the course students will be able to use Python programming language to do many useful tasks such as reading from files, writing to files, searching, and data mining…Python was first used in 1991, and has been around before Java or JavaScript.
