Course Overview

This course will introduce the core data structures of the Python programming language. We will move past the basics of procedural programming and explore how we can use the Python built-in data structures such as lists, dictionaries, and tuples to perform increasingly complex data analysis. This course will cover Chapters 6-10 of the textbook “Python for Everybody”.  This course covers Python 3.

What You Will Learn

  • Accomplish multi-step tasks like sorting or looping using tuples
  • Create programs that are able to read and write data from files
  • Store data as key/value pairs using Python dictionaries

Skills You Will Gain

  • Python Syntax And Semantics
  • Data Structure
  • Tuple
  • Python Programming

Course Content

Part 1: Strings

In this class, starting in Chapter 6 of the textbook and covering Strings and moving into data structures. The second part of this class is dedicated to getting Python installed if you want to actually run the applications on your desktop or laptop.

  • Strings
  • Manipulating Strings

Part 2: Unit: Installing and Using Python

In this module you will set things up so you can write Python programs. We do not require installation of Python for this class. You can write and test Python programs in the browser using the “Python Code Playground” in this lesson.

  • Demonstration: Using the Python Playground
  • Windows 10: Installing Python and Writing A Program
  • Windows: Taking Screen Shots
  • Macintosh: Using Python and Writing A Program
  • Macintosh: Taking Screen Shots

Part 3: Files

Up to now, we have been working with data that is read from the user or data in constants. But real programs process much larger amounts of data by reading and writing files on the secondary storage on your computer. In this chapter we start to write our first programs that read, scan, and process real data.

  • Files
  • Processing Files

Part 4: Lists

As we want to solve more complex problems in Python, we need more powerful variables. Up to now we have been using simple variables to store numbers or strings where we have a single value in a variable. Starting with lists we will store many values in a single variable using an indexing scheme to store, organize, and retrieve different values from within a single variable. We call these multi-valued variables “collections” or “data structures”.

  • Lists
  • Manipulating Lists
  • Lists and Strings

Part 5: Dictionaries

The Python dictionary is one of its most powerful data structures. Instead of representing values in a linear list, dictionaries store data as key / value pairs. Using key / value pairs gives us a simple in-memory “database” in a single Python variable.

  • Dictionaries
  • Counting with Dictionaries
  • Dictionaries and Files

Part 6: Tuples

Tuples are our third and final basic Python data structure. Tuples are a simple version of lists. We often use tuples in conjunction with dictionaries to accomplish multi-step tasks like sorting or looping through all of the data in a dictionary.

  • Tuples
  • Tuples and Sorting
  • Inventing JQuery
  • JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)
