Who Should Take?

This course assumes that students have prior experience programming in Python. Specifically, students taking this course should be familiar with Python's built-in data types (including lists, tuples, and dictionaries), Python's conditional and flow-of-control structures (including if/elif/else, for, and while), and Python's input/output functions (including print, input, and file reading and writing). Students who are familiar with these concepts in another programming language but not in Python should learn the Python equivalents prior to taking this class.

Students with no prior programming experience should instead consider our Introduction to Programming with Python course.

We will be providing a free online textbook for this class, which students can access from the class homepage. Students will also need to download free Python software onto their computers. We will provide detailed instructions for how to install this software prior to the beginning of the course.

This class was the best! I have tried to learn programming before but this one explained it the most clearly ever!  I would definitely continue to take more AoPS classes in the future!
