Python Programming

Python is a powerful programming language you can use to do almost anything. You can use it to develop a script to determine the day of the week based off of any calendar date, use machine-learning techniques to build predictive models, or automate a task that you do every day! This lesson will help you learn Python programming the right way!

To begin your coding journey, you’ll start with the basics of programming in Python to prepare for using variables, data types, and lists in Python. Because you’ll be learning Python programming from the beginning, you don’t need any programming experience to complete this module; all you need is curiosity, a willingness to embrace a new skill, and the determination not to give up!

Since you don’t need any programming experience, you’ll start this lesson by learning about the Python programming language and what you can do with it. Next, you’ll learn how to use the print function to display the results of a statement when the program is executed. You’ll also learn about Python syntax, and toward the end of this lesson, you’ll learn about computer programs, how to leave comments in your code, and how to use arithmetic operations to perform mathematical functions.
