  • Comments
  • The print() function
  • The input() function
  • Numeral Systems: Binary, octal, decimal, hexadecimal.
  • Numeric Operators: **, *, /, %, //, +, –
  • String Operators: *, +
  • Assignments and Shortcut Operators

Data Types Evaluations and Basic I/O Operations

  • Operators: Unary and binary, priorities, and binding.
  • Bitwise Operators: ~, &, ^, |, <<, >>
  • Boolean Operators: not, and, or
  • Boolean Expressions
  • Relational Operators: ==, !=, >, >=, <, <=
  • Accuracy of Floating-Point Numbers
  • Basic Input and Output Operations: Using input(), print(), int(), float(), str(), len() functions.
  • Formatting print() Output: With end= and sep= arguments.
  • Type Casting
  • Basic Calculations
  • Simple Strings: Constructing, assigning, indexing, immutability.

Flow Control Loops and Conditional Blocks

  • Conditional Statements: if, if-else, if-elif, if-elif-else.
  • Multiple Conditional Statements
  • The pass Instruction
  • Building Loops: while, for, range(), in.
  • Iterating Through Sequences

  • Nesting Loops and Conditional Statements
  • Controlling Loop Execution: break, continue.

Data Collections Lists, Tuples, and Dictionaries

  • Simple Lists: Constructing vectors, indexing and slicing, the len() function.
  • Lists in Detail: Indexing, slicing, basic methods (append(), insert(), index()) and functions (len(), sorted(), etc.), del instruction, iterating lists with the for loop, initializing, in and not in operators, list comprehension, copying, and cloning.
  • Lists in Lists: Matrices and cubes.
  • Tuples: Indexing, slicing, building, immutability.
  • Tuples vs. Lists: Similarities and differences, lists inside tuples and tuples inside lists.
  • Dictionaries: Building, indexing, adding, and removing keys, iterating through dictionaries as well as their keys and values, checking key existence, keys(), items() and values() methods.
  • Strings in Detail: Escaping using the \ character, quotes and apostrophes inside strings, multiline strings, basic string functions.

  • Return and Yield Keywords, Returning Results
  • The None Keyword
  • Recursion
  • Parameters vs. Arguments
  • Positional, Keyword, and Mixed Argument Passing
  • Default Parameter Values
