      Coding for Kids - Python Meets Math (10+)

      Start your journey with Python, a real-world syntax-based programming language &  Challenge your Talented Coder with more Advanced Real-World programs Consistently ranked #1 as the “Most Popular Coding Language“, learning Python will enable your child to build programs that are used widely today in many domains; Eg. Web Development, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence. In this program specifically designed based on the PSLE Mathematics curriculum, Mathematics will be used as the context through which students pick up Python programming skills. They will learn how to apply Mathematical Operators to calculate the area of a square or even develop a BMI Calculator (Who knew that +, -, x, ÷ could be so fun!). They will also make use of conditionals to create a Movie-Age checker. And what about ending off with developing their own personalised “Baymax“, complete with a health tracker and personalised health tips? The sky is the limit as Kids get their hands on these exercises, and much more in our Python Meets Math classes! In this program, Mathematics will be used as the context through which students pick up Python programming skills. They will learn how to apply Mathematical Operators to calculate the area of a square or even develop a BMI Calculator (Who knew that +, -, x, ÷ could be so fun!). They will also make use of conditionals to create a Movie-Age checker. And what about finding the lowest common multiple of two numbers, with just a touch of the button? Kids get to learn these, and much more in our Python Meets Math classes! This powerful synergistic pairing of Math and Programming has been tested in selected schools and proven to provide students a solid foundation in both.   Course Outline Introduction to Python Learn to install, setup and run Python Introduction to the various data types (Eg. Strings, Float, Integers) Various Data Types Learn and apply numerical data and Mathematics operators Calculate the area of a Square/Triangle/Circle Develop a BMI Calculator Learn String (text) data and String manipulation Making Decisions with Conditional Operators Syntax of if, if-then-else, if and e lif Develop your own “Baymax” – Your Personal Healthcare Companion Logical operators and Truth tables Learning and Applying logical operators (And, Or, Not) Develop a Movie-Age Checker While Loops Using while loops Applying while loops to Mathematics (Eg. Prime numbers, Lowest Common Multiple) Problem-sum solving with Guess and Check Using Modules and Libraries Random numbers Hackathon and Challenges Timed Challenges for students to stretch their abilities    Who is this coding class for? Children 10-12 years old Completed Scratch Intermediate Laptop provided (one per child) 4 Full-Day Camp (Accelerated) Class Structure 4 Day Full Day Camp Lessons start from 9.00am and end at 3.30pm Course Fees $450
