Python Programming Challenges

This booklet consists of 16 introductory programming challenges, some of the challenges also provide further extension challenges, for every challenge there is a "Self Review" section which asks students to comment on whether they managed to complete the task successfully, whether they had any errors initially and what they were, how the student solved these errors, and finally what they found difficult about the task. There is a brief overview at the start of how to fill out this self review section, plus a "Coaching record", which provides space to note down any members of the class that the student has helped, what topic it was on and how they helped. The challenges could be used as is as the basis of a self paced series of lessons or extracted to be used in a different format. Specific topics could be identified and lessons on those topics given, before students were asked to complete specific task numbers.
