teenS learn to code PYTHON!

This page is the one-stop resource for everything we do in class!
You will be able to find links to slide content, kahoot quizzes and more resources below


Please bring a USB to all classes to save your work. You can save locally on the computers however there is no guarantee that those files will remain there as the computers are shared between students from other classes.


Current Homework Assignment / Due June 8th

Create a program that calculates a class average.
(Do scroll down to the downloads section to download the file from lesson 2)

There are 10 students in the class and their scores are as follows:

  • 40

  • 50

  • 5

  • 99

  • 55

  • 20

  • 96

  • 39

  • 49

  • 100

In order to calculate the class average you would use the math equation below:

Sum of all scores in class
Class Average = —————————————
Number of Students

This is the final result using the calculation above:

Sum of all scores in class = 553
Class Average = 553 / 10 = 55.3

Use your knowledge from the following code structures to solve this problem:

  • Variables and how to store a value

  • For loops in order to repeat a code block

  • Arrays and indexes, how to create a list of items

  • Print statements to display your final result

Remember you are CODE STITCHING, so before you start coding right away:

Write multiple line comments which will act as pseudo code and list out the steps you would take to solve this in english sentences FIRST.
Use pen and paper too (or a trusty whiteboard if you have one!) and refer to any code we worked on in class as well for ideas!
If your pseudo code is accurate - translating from english to code becomes much easier because your understanding of the logic is
already fully thought out :)
