Interested in automation or creating powerful scripts in Python? Begin to Explore programming jargon and formatting used in Python scripts and create your own games using Pygame.
Python is an excellent start for those interested in higher level programming. It is often used for finance and mathematical testing due to its speed and relative simplicity. Through python, students will begin to learn how to “think like a programmer” and develop their own programs.
In our introductory Python course, students will learn the basics of programming using boolean logic, conditional statements, variables, and loops to create simple Python scripts and games. Check out some of our sample projects below!
Students will make use of pythons random number generators and loops to simulate a rock paper scissors game against the computer.
Students will create a program which takes in a value of money and separate the money into currency amounts using conditional statements and the modulus operator
Students develop a code to check whether a number is a prime number using mathematical operators.
In this introductory Python course, students will develop an understanding of basic programming techniques to create their own code. In this course, some or all of the following topics will be covered:
In our Intermediate Python course, students will learn the use of programming functions and the use of graphic user interfaces. Students will write their own python code utilizing Pygames built in functions to create 2-D games. Check out some of our sample projects below!
Students create a game where a spaceship must stop the invaders from reaching the end of the screen. This program focuses on projectile management using arrays and restricting player movement.
Students create a game where the goal is to absorb all enemies smaller than the player to grow bigger making use of loops, collision detection, and user inputs
Suggested Prerequisite: PY-400
