[Edu-sig] Python @ Education: What are your problems?
Thu, 30 May 2002 00:47:25 +0200
are you using python for teaching programing?
I am just writing a diploma paper about python and want to know your
experiences with python.
What do you like when teaching python?
- Easy readable syntax
- High Level language
- Lists, Tupels, Dictionaries included
- interpreter: Everything can be tested
- Many tools available
AND MORE IMPORTANT:
What are your problems with python? Are pupils/students having any
problems or often asked questions?
What do you dislike at python?
- When teaching C or Pascal, newbies do not know, where to set a ";" and
where not. Any similar problems with Python?
- Why must I set a ":" after "if" or "for" ? " if x == y : "
I hope you have many suggestions.
