Take your Python coding to the next level! Book 2 continues seamlessly on from Python Basics, offering full support and progressive tasks for students who have some basic programming experience and are ready to move on to slightly more challenging material. You will learn how to program and customise a simple calculator and, most importantly, learn essential new programming ideas that will make you a much more accomplished coder. The code is suitable for Mac, Windows and Linux users and therefore compatible with the Raspberry Pi.
Suitable for children whose only prioir knowledge is from Coding Club: Python Basics.
Designed and written for children at Key Stage 2 and 3 (ages 7-14), offering a foundation for Key Stage 4 (ages 14-16).
Takes a project-based approach, allowing students to progress at different paces.
Can be completed in one term at school, or more quickly at home. Further time can be spent exploring different ways of completing the challenges and making adaptations.
Full support, source code and answers are provided on the companion website.
