Week 4

Functions

Definition, arguments, return values, variable scope, recursion.

  

Expected Outcome: Understand how to define and use functions.

Week 5

More on Functions

Common built-in functions, lambda functions, understanding errors.

Week 6

Modules and Libraries

Importing, common built-in modules (e.g., math, datetime).

 

Expected Outcome: Understand how to use modules and libraries.

Week 7

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.

Week 8

Mini-Project

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.
