As you learned in Python Basics: Functions and Loops, functions serve as the fundamental building blocks in almost every Python program. They’re where the real action happens!

You now know that functions are crucial for breaking down code into smaller, manageable chunks. They enable you to define actions that your program can execute repeatedly throughout your code. Instead of duplicating the same code whenever your program needs to accomplish a particular task, you can simply call the function.

However, there are instances when you need to repeat certain code multiple times in a row. This is where loops become invaluable.

In this Python Basics Exercises video course, you’ll practice:

  • Creating user-defined functions
  • Implementing for loops
  • Getting user input
  • Rounding numbers

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.
