Summary


Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyProgrammingLab does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MyProgrammingLab  search for ISBN-10: 0133862259/ISBN-13: 978013386225 . That package includes ISBN-10: 0133582736/ISBN-13: 9780133582734  and ISBN-10: 0133759113 /ISBN-13: 9780133759112.


MyProgrammingLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.


This text is intended for a one-semester introductory programming course for students with limited programming experience. It is also appropriate for readers interested in introductory programming.

 

In Starting Out with Python®, Third Edition Tony Gaddis’ evenly-paced, accessible coverage introduces students to the basics of programming and prepares them to transition into more complicated languages. Python, an easy-to-learn and increasingly popular object-oriented language, allows readers to become comfortable with the fundamentals of programming without the troublesome syntax that can be challenging for novices. With the knowledge acquired using Python, students gain confidence in their skills and learn to recognize the logic behind developing high-quality programs.

Starting Out with Python discusses control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, detail-oriented explanations, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter.

 

MyProgrammingLab for Starting Out with Python is a total learning package. MyProgrammingLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program that truly engages students in learning. It helps students better prepare for class, quizzes, and exams–resulting in better performance in the course–and provides educators a dynamic set of tools for gauging individual and class progress.

 

Teaching and Learning Experience

This program presents a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students. It will help:

  • Support Instructors and Students: Student and instructor resources are available to expand on the topics presented in the text.
  • Keep Your Course Current: This edition’s programs have been tested with Python 3.3.2.
