~ Solve Problems and Learn how to code in Python

0 - Introduction and Pedagogy


Sometimes the best way to learn something is to solve problems and learn as you go along! Learn Python the best way at www.teachyourselfpython.com

In this series, you are going to be presented with a series of problems and the tasks are inbuilt in (using comments) into the python file. Simply read the task, and attempt it! Note that in all tasks the answer is in the code itself. In most cases the code has been given to you, it is just a matter of you finding it, understanding what has been done, and then adapting it to write your own code!

You can either edit and code online in repl.it (click on the link on the right which says EDIT on repl.it. Alternatively, you can simply cut and paste the below into your own python file

So click on the link on the left <<--- 1-Chatbot and Variables to get started!

Please note: The challenges here introduce some basic concepts and the code doesn't necessarily reflect the most elegant solutions. This allows teachers to discuss advantanges and disadvantages of a certain approach with students. As we build up on the challenges, you'll note that the solutions become more elegant as additional programming tools and constructs are introduced

Code your solution here

Systems Life Cycle (in a nutshell): Analyse - Design - Create - Test - Evaluate. Designing something or writing out some pseudocode before you actually write code is always a good idea! Get in to the habit of doing so! You can draw your flowchart here and screenshot it.

A sample flow chart (design) for this particular challenge could look like:

Flowchart: Python program to get the Fibonacci series between 0 to 50
Each challenge section below provides an online drawing tool where you can dynamically create flowcharts. Screenshot them into your presentation for submission.

You may want to read a little about Testing first. A teacher may go through some examples with you. Feel free to fill in the test table here, and screenshot it in to your powerpoint. Testing is absolutely essential once you have created a program!
