2023 Winter - Python Programming Level 2

The “Python Programming Level 2” builds on the principles from the “Python Programming Level 1” course. Students will continue to learn how to create games and solve real-life problems, but at a more advanced level and with more independence. 


Learning objectives:

  • Create and follow Flowcharts for organizing code structure,
  • Learn how to create more robust, error-resistant code with exceptions,
  • Apply and use recursion for creating fractal-like patterns,
  • Be introduced to more advanced libraries like Pygame, 
  • Use input and output to save and read user data in games,
  • Become more familiar with common variable operators and new types like sets,
  • Learn how to define new data types through the use of classes

Pygame and the interactive drawing library Turtle, introduced in level 1, will be the main platform for learning many of these objectives.
