About this course
Where Intro to Python guided students through core programming concepts and Python basics, Python Level 2 strives to take things to the next level. Students will be challenged to take learning into their own hands and explore new libraries that give them access to tools such as speech recognition, synthetic voice, graphic images, and interaction with the web. Though the course pace and level of guidance given will match what is expected for students Grades 6 - 10, the result should be a series of 1st year university level projects developed over 18 weeks.
What you'll learn
By the end of this course, students will be introduced to and working with programming concepts such as advanced data types, working with external files, robust programming, fractals, recursion and iterators, and the world of voice assistants and IOT. Content that will be covered includes Python Dictionaries, Tuples, External Files, Searching and Sorting, Random and External Libraries, Voice Assistants: Queries and Commands, Recursion, and Fractals.
Each lesson, students will review the previous class’s course topic and assignment, followed by a presentation regarding the current course topic. During guided programming sessions, students will have opportunities to practice the topics they’ve learned. Moreover, students will participate in independent programming challenges!
