Lab 01: Expressions
Always use this link in order to see the latest version of this assignment (just refreshing the page with the opened notebook will not work).
In today’s lab, you’ll learn how to:
- navigate Jupyter notebooks;
- write and evaluate some basic expressions in Python, the computer language of the course;
- call functions to use code other people have written; and
- break down Python code into smaller parts to understand it.
This lab covers parts of Chapter 3 of the online textbook http://www.inferentialthinking.com/chapters/03/programming-in-python.html. You should read the book after the lab, especially if something is unclear.
