Much of the Python code you’ll write is unconditional. That is, the code doesn’t make any choices. Every line of code is executed in the order that it’s written or in the order that functions are called, with possible repetitions inside loops.
In this course, you’ll learn how to use conditional logic to write programs that perform different actions based on different conditions. Paired with functions and loops, conditional logic allows you to write complex programs that can handle many different situations.
In this Python Basics video course, you’ll learn how to:
- Compare the values of two or more variables
ifstatements to control the flow of your programs
- Handle errors with
- Apply conditional logic to create simulations
This video course is part of the Python Basics series, which accompanies Python Basics: A Practical Introduction to Python 3. You can also check out the other Python Basics courses.
Note that you’ll be using IDLE to interact with Python throughout this course.
