Welcome to Python!
This post is intended to be a hub for resources and extras that you may need or be interested in during our Python Unit.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION (FAQs)
Q: How do I write my code?
A: For the work we will be doing in class, we will be using the Python’s built-in IDLE application. You can find this by going to Applications -> Python -> IDLE
Q: How do I hand in my files?
A: You will need to create a folder in OneDrive and store/save ALL your Python files there. This way you can easily share them to me by email.
Q: Where will we be able to find our notes/assignments/projects?
A: All topics will be posted on the website in individual posts (similar to our Scratch Unit).
