Complete the “For i in range” unit through lesson 4.9 during the next three class periods.
You will need to use your knowledge of past concepts (if/else, print(), using variables) along with the new structure. The For i in Range is very similar to the Repeat loop in Scratch, as it repeats sections of code a specific number of times. It is possible to use a variable for the start, stop and step parameters. To go backwards, use a larger number for the start parameter, a smaller number for the stop parameter and a negative number (usually -1) for the increment (or step) parameter.
Those who have finished unit 4 or 5, please continue on to the next section.
Monday: 15 minutes
Tuesday: 30 minutes
Wednesday: 15 minutes
Thursday: 40 minutes
