What will you learn in our Python Core courses?

Our Python courses are available to students falling into the following age groups: 

Age 9 – 11 Years (Young Learners Course)

This is the Python Core course which is split into 2 parts as follows –

  1. INTRODUCTION TO PYTHON PROGRAMMING – Learning Python programming using blocks. Creating drawings and games using Python Turtle Commands
  2. ADVANCED PYTHON PROGRAMMING – Students will shift to text-based programming and explore advanced Python concepts such as type casting, string handling, functions, lists, and more.

In addition to the Python Core course, as detailed above, we also have a Python for Data Science course for students of 9 to 11 years. 

INTRODUCTION TO DATA SCIENCE – Students are introduced to data science concepts. They learn how to run basic math operations to analyze data and represent it using different types of charts and infographics. With Python Pandas library commands students will learn to create tables, insert data in them and print them.  

Ages 12-14 years (Early Achievers Course)

This is the Python Core course which is split into 2 parts as follows –

  1. INTRODUCTION TO PYTHON PROGRAMMING – During these coding classes the students will learn the basic concepts of Python and code programs using a text-based editor. All programs are written using the Python Turtle library.
  2. ADVANCED PYTHON PROGRAMMINGStudents will explore advanced Python concepts such as data types, type casting, and basic data structures like tuples, lists, and dictionaries.

In addition to the Python Core course detailed above, PurpleTutor also offers these advanced Python courses for students in the age group of 12-14 years-

  1. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – Students are introduced to AI and Machine Learning. They will create voice, image, and text recognition projects using teachable machines and Scratch. They then explore deeper into how computers visualize images and create various image and video manipulation projects using the CV2 library of Python. They also create a machine learning model for emotion detection, using Python code.
  2. DATA SCIENCE – PYTHON – Students will work with Google Sheets and Forms to collect and store data. They will learn how to use the Python Numpy module to analyze data. Students will explore the Python Panda library commands to create dataframes. They will learn how to read data from the CSV file and how to visually represent the data using the Python Matplotlib library.

Ages 15+ years (Young Professionals Course)

This is what the Python Core course covers for the students of this age group:

  1. PYTHON BASICS – Students will learn the core Python programming concepts, during these coding classes. They will get hands-on experience in activities to apply their understanding of basic data types, conditionals, loops, typecasting, basic data types, functions, and variables.
  2. PYTHON DATA STRUCTURES – Students will explore advanced data structures of Python namely lists, dictionaries, tuples, strings, stacks, and queues. they will be given the practice to write code on how to manipulate data in these data structures using python functions. Students will learn how to apply Binary and Linear search algorithms for searching elements. They will also learn how to use Insertion and bubble sort algorithms to sort data.

In addition to the Python Core course detailed above, PurpleTutor also offers these advanced Python courses for students who are 15 years or above-

  1. DATA SCIENCE FUNDAMENTALS WITH PYTHON – Students will learn how to import and use the math, random, and statistics Python libraries that are used in Data Science. In these coding classes, they will also learn about Object Oriented Programming and how to apply it.
  2. DATA SCIENCE WITH PYTHON – Students will learn to apply statistics module functions to data. They will work to organize and manipulate data in arrays, series, and data frames using NumPy. They will also explore the Matplotlib library to represent data using different graphs.
