Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

• working knowledge of programming basics (using Python 3) and their application in a programming and working environments
• familiarity with fundamentals of representations and abstractions in programming
• familiarity with fundamentals of imperative programming
• ability to author correct and well-formatted pieces of (Python 3) code
• working understanding (structure/orientation; ability to locate, understand, and use information) of the reference documentation, availability of software packages, and support communities
• analytical and synthetic thinking
• acquisition of skills related to programming tools (installation, functionalities) -- interactive interpreter; integrated development environment (editor, debugger, inspector); interactive sharable notebooks
• applied problem solving skills

Assessment and permitted materials

Exercises (weekly assignments and debriefings in class) plus final term work;
Mandatory attendance of all class units;
Active participation in class and postings on course moodle

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Both, the cumulative grading of the exercises (weighted median of the weekly assignments) and the grade of the final term work, must be positive (i.e., more than 50 out of 100 points).
Active participation and documented contributions in class are considered as discriminators for borderline grading cases

Examination topics

• Working knowledge and skills of programming basics (using Python 3) and their deployment in integrated programming environments: syntax, operational semantics, PIP 8 style (formatting, documentation)
• Demonstrated grasp of fundamentals of representations and abstractions in programming (including the special cases of quantities/numbers and texts/strings)
• Demonstrated acquisition of knowledge and skills related to fundamentals of imperative programming
• Demonstrated working understanding and productive use of the Python 3 reference documentation, the collection of software packages, and of the support communities (awareness of structure = orientation; ability to locate, understand, and use information and software packages)
• Analytical and synthetic thinking: identification and correction of issues with incomplete/faulty cases, translation of problem definitions into valid and correct programming representations
• Acquired programming tool use skills (installation, functionalities) -- interactive interpreter; integrated development environment (editor, debugger, inspector); interactive sharable notebooks
• Applied problem solving skills and compliance with best practice: demonstrated ability to author programming solutions of problems that comply with PIP 8 style

Reading list

• Official reference material available on python.org
• Additional material made available in class
