BEGINNER Python or Project Euler (Eric Menninga)

Eric is willing to offer one of two classes in Spring Term:

Learn basic beginner programming with Python and PyGame. Topics you’ll explore games, fractals, and simulations. After you take this class, you should have a better understanding about how computer programs work and can create a simple python program with graphics.

OR

Project Euler, a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that requires more than just mathematical knowledge to solve. Although mathematics will help you arrive at elegant and efficient methods, the use of a computer and programming skills will be required to solve most problems—which are challenging. You can check out the Problems before deciding.

Required texts/materials:

  • Python (free)
  • Euler (free)
Students will be responsible for obtaining their own texts/materials. Materials should be procured by:

Tech Space (Sam) (Sam)

 

Technology is an ever-growing part of life. We use cell phones, midis for music, as well as computers for gaming and research. This will be a space for people to come and be creative on solo projects and collaborate on group ideas.

Our main focus will be to work on shows for our radio station, KLOK radio.

Also, this space will be a place for people to come and work on digital art, coding, podcasting, digital music, DJing, designing, and more.  We will be able to take these projects and use them for our personal endeavors or incorporate them into our school community.
