These task cards also test students understanding of the following programming concepts: 1) syntax errors 2) logical errors 3) variables 4) print() function 5) input() function 6) int() function 6) if statements 7) while loops 8) lists 9) sorting & reverse sorting data in lists. Each task card also allows you to question students further on their knowledge of Python i.e: • “why was the data type string and not integer?” • “what is the difference between the input() and print() functions?” • “why did we need to use the int() function?E • Etc… Python software can be downloaded for free from: https://www.python.org/downloads/ There are also many online platforms in which Python can be used such as codeacademy.com
