Expected Outcome: Understand and be able to use Python's built-in data structures.
Definition, arguments, return values, variable scope, recursion.
Expected Outcome: Understand how to define and use functions.
More on Functions
Common built-in functions, lambda functions, understanding errors.
Expected Outcome: Be able to utilize built-in functions and lambda functions, and understand how to debug a program.
Modules and Libraries
Importing, common built-in modules (e.g., math, datetime).
Expected Outcome: Understand how to use modules and libraries.
File I/O and Exception Handling
Reading from and writing to files, basics of error handling.
Expected Outcome: Understand how to handle files and exceptions in Python.
Guided work on a small project incorporating everything learned so far (like a text-based game or simple data analysis).
Expected Outcome: By the end of the beginner course, students will have a strong foundation in Python, having learned syntax, data structures, functions, modules, and exception handling. They will have a small project that demonstrates their understanding of these concepts.
