UCLA Olga Radko Endowed Math Circle

5/22/2022 -- Beginners 2A: Spring - Intro to Python (Continued)

Class Plan:

We continue studying programming.

Location and Time:

This class will be held in person from 4 - 6 pm at Mathematical Sciences 6221.

Required Resources:

We ask that all students who can bring their own laptops and chargers. For students who are not able to, we will provide the proper materials.

To ensure a smooth class and prevent any technical difficulties, we ask that for all students who had trouble logging in last time to ensure they have a working account for this week. Students will need a Google account to access the Colab. We found that some students with school and/or age-restricted accounts were unable to gain access last time.

To check, please go to this link: tinyurl.com/ormcPythonIntro and attempt to run the first cell. If unsuccessful, we ask that the student create a personal account if possible.

Homework Due:


Homework Assigned:

We ask every student to continue their exploration of the Turtle module in Python (https://tinyurl.com/ormcB2Aturtles), by creating their own drawing to be submitted. We will be anonymously voting on student submissions next class, as an informal programmatic art contest of sorts. For this purpose, we ask every student to create and save a drawing in the form of a screenshot. Their artwork, as well as the code that generated it, should be submitted to the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/nKvPjFWvvnyLJPKT6.
