Below is a presentation on while loops. It introduces the concept of while loops, explains what they are with several examples and also presents some additional information and challenges with solutions. Go through the presentation carefully before then going on to the challenge below

Challenge on While Loops

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

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.
