Schools are increasingly adopting Python as the programming language of choice. As well as online maths tuition, Tutor Dragon offers Python tutoring and support.
Python is called an “interpreted” language so you can run it over a browser if you don’t want to install a full IDE (Integrated Development Environment). For example:
x = 1
print “x = ” + str(x)
x = x + 100
print “Now x = ” + str(x)
Python should work using a browser on Windows, Apple and Chrome – to get off the ground try pasting the above few lines of code into pythonfiddle.com and click “Run”:
Python is a high-level language and is very easy to learn form scratch which is probably why many schools globally use it as the standard language to learn in the classroom rather than say Java, C++ or Visual Basic (VB).
