I really feel like a little more explanation is needed here. All the other examples talked about what was going on, but this one didn’t. Why did range(5) not go to 5? I know it’s because it create a zero based array and added 5 items to it, but this might not be so obvious to our young readers. Also, we just did our first loop with nary a mention of how important or power they are.
you are a but face
This needs more explanation, not just the Python command stuff to follow. 10 year olds like me don’t understand.
i can and im 9
Hi Alex (and jscubbuage),
Part of my motivation is to have students fend for themselves a bit. As the course goes on it has more explanation (possibly too much!).
[This particular tutorial is an exercise in empiricism. I’m not trying to show what range(5) means so much as what it is.]
