First and foremost, work on your final projects. Be sure to email me an update on your progress by next Wednesday.

Python: Download and install Python on your computer, then read and follow along with sections 3-6 of this tutorial. At the end, write a Python script in which you assign your name to a variable (like, say, “name”) and then use a for loop to print out each letter in your name. You can either email me the script or save it and bring it to class. Python scripts end in .py, so if you use Notepad or some other editor, make sure to change the extension to .py. Otherwise, I’d encourage you to use IDLE, the built-in editor, and choose File -> New to create a new script file.
