Class Package

Class Project(s)
Students will make projects including a variety of games and applications. These can range from medium to advanced complexity.

Our Proprietary In-Browser Coding Platform.

The KTBYTE team developed the KTCoder™ with our students in mind! Our platform supports block-based and typed out code in the most popular coding languages: Java, Python, and C++. This revolutionary all-in-one coding platform supports our interactive online classes, our specialized curriculum, and (most importantly) our students' passion for learning.
Student Progress Report
KTBYTE will e-mail parents with behavior and grade progess reports.
Certificate of Completion
Students can request a certificate of completion once they finish the course

Class Description:

Python Level 3 is your passport to a deeper understanding of Python. We will start by reviewing the basics – lists, loops, functions, etc. – before moving on to more advanced features. We then go over more advanced functions and function algorithms, classes, and JSONS, which segways us into APIs and programs using free APIs. We finish off with an introduction to data statistics and science with Python, using Pandas’ DataFrames, Numpy, and Matplotlib’s Pyplot.

Prerequisites:

Age 13+, PY02 or Instructor Permisssion
