Introduction to Python Programming Part 8: Looping

Introduction to Python Programming Part 8: Looping

Part 8 of a series of 8 introductory lessons on how to use Python through the use of the IDLE GUI. Within Part 8 you will learn how to improve the efficiency of your coding by writing loop functions. You will learn how to write two different types of loop sequences; While loops and For loops. This work builds upon and applies concepts learned within the previous work within the Rob-Bot Resources Introduction to Python Programming series. Learn new programming skills through clearly presented explanations before applying your newly developed skills within a series of easy to follow tasks, explained through written explanations as well as flowcharts and/or pseudo code. Each unit in this series is fully differentiated using Rob-Bot Resources’ unique Rookie, Pro & Beast leveling system; apply your new programming skills by completing the introductory Rookie tasks. Once you've got a grip of the basics, push yourself by completing the Pro exercises before finally testing your skills by completing the Beast scenarios. Once you have completed the practice tasks it’s time to test your skills within the differentiated programming challenges! All task and challenge coding solutions are also included. Suitable for both KS3 & KS4 classes. ***Please leave a review :) ***
