This course aims to teach everyone the basics of programming computers using Python. We cover the basics of how to construct a program from a series of simple instructions in Python. The course has no pre-requisites and avoids all but the simplest mathematics. Anyone with moderate computer experience should be able to master the materials in this course. This course will cover chapters 1-5 of the textbook Python for Everybody.  Once a student completes this course, they will be ready to take more advanced programming courses. This course covers Python 3.
