This program perfectly blends fun and education, leaving students with confidence in navigating the world of text-based coding. Students will become confident in Python’s syntax, and have a solid understanding of programming logic and key coding concepts such as functions, loops, if statements, variables, lists, booleans, and recursive algorithms. By the end of the course, students will be able to write simple programs in Python independently.
Skill Samurai's research-based, project-based learning (PBL) approach to Python 1 keeps the learning fun and engaging while ensuring a solid foundation in CS.
Upon completion of Python 1, students will be ready to advance to Python text 2
The Python 1 Core course normally takes between 5 and 6 weeks to complete, depending upon course frequency (1:1 versus 1:1 Accelerated), the student’s prior coding experience, and the student’s consistency in completing homework assignments. Our teachers move at the student’s pace, and spend time ensuring that students have a thorough understanding of key concepts.
