Summary

On this course, you’ll explore Python programming at an intermediate level. 

You’ll discover how to break down problems into smaller parts, and then design and apply algorithms to data. You’ll also explore list structures and their various uses. 

Ultimately, what you learn will build upon your foundational Python skills - preparing you to progress onto more advanced programming.

This course would suit teachers with some Python experience, who are able to write simple programs demonstrating sequencing, selection, iteration and data types. We recommend that you take our Programming 101 course if you are unsure.

Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • Produce your own functions to break down problems into more manageable parts
  • Explain several common search and sort algorithms
  • Compare the efficiency of algorithms
  • Modify functions to take parameters and output return values
  • Interpret algorithms expressed in plain English, in pseudocde and as flowcharts
