It worked for me ...

Step 1 : Download Python 3.5 from here ---
Step 2 : Install it 
Step 3 : Click on the 'IDLE' button --- for me , I am using a Mac so I click on 'Finder', then type IDLE in the search field on the top right corner of the 'Finder'. 
Step 4 : Click on the IDLE and it opens up, a happy looking 'Python 3.5.0' shell there. There is however a warning that this version may be unstable. However, I am able to execute commands on it like 1 + 2 = 3
