Week 1-2 : Day 5, Day 6, and Day 7 of your Python learning journey:

Day 5: Conditional Statements (if statements)

  • Conditional Logic:
  • Introduce the concept of conditional statements for decision-making in Python.
  • Explain how if, elif (else if), and else statements work.
  • Syntax:
  • Show the syntax for an if statement: if condition: # Code to execute if condition is True
  • Comparison Operators:
  • Introduce comparison operators used in conditions:
    • == (equal to), != (not equal to), < (less than), > (greater than), <= (less than or equal to), >= (greater than or equal to).
  • Examples:
  • Provide examples of simple if statements:
    python age = 20 if age >= 18: print("You are an adult.")

Day 6: Loops (for and while loops)

  • For Loops:
  • Introduce for loops for iterating over sequences (e.g., lists, strings, range objects).
  • Explain the basic syntax: for item in sequence: # Code to execute for each item
  • While Loops:
  • Introduce while loops for repeated execution based on a condition.
  • Explain the basic syntax: while condition: # Code to execute while condition is True
  • Examples:
  • Provide examples of for and while loops: # Example of a for loop numbers = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] for num in numbers: print(num) # Example of a while loop count = 0 while count < 5: print(count) count += 1

Day 7: Basic Input and Output

  • Input from the User:
  • Introduce the input() function for getting user input.
  • Explain how to use input() to store user input in a variable. name = input("Enter your name: ")
  • Output to the Console:
  • Discuss the print() function for displaying output to the console.
  • Show how to format and combine output using print(). print("Hello, " + name + "!")
  • Formatting Output:
  • Introduce basic string formatting techniques (e.g., f-strings): age = 25 print(f"You are {age} years old.")
  • Practice Exercises:
  • Provide exercises that involve conditional statements, loops, user input, and output to practice the concepts learned.

By the end of Day 7, you should have a solid grasp of control flow in Python, including conditional statements (if, elif, else), loops (for and while), and basic input/output operations. These concepts are fundamental for creating more complex programs and applications in Python.
