There are several building blocks in Python that you’ll need for doing pretty much anything: values, operations, and functions. Today’s class is focused on what you can do with these building blocks and how they differ from what you might expect.

Basic Learning Objectives

Before class, you should be able to:

  • Give examples of at least two values of different types in Python
  • Use operations to solve math problems using Python
  • Use a built-in/provided function
  • Change the type of a value

Advanced Learning Objectives

After class, you should be able to:

  • Predict what type an expression will result in
  • Explain how int and float values interact
  • Use the modulus % operator
