In this half-year elective course, students will extend their knowledge of Python to study, trade, and analyze a real portfolio of stocks on a popular free trading platform *.  As part of this course, students will be introduced to popular Python data science libraries, fundamental statistics and presentation, and the basics of equity trading.

Students are required to have completed CSR-340 (or equivalent) before enrolling in this class.  If your student did not take CSR-340, please contact us to schedule a free placement evaluation before registering.

Computer Science Using Python is our intermediate programming class which teaches the fundamentals of Python while exploring some advanced features of the Python language. It strengthens core computer science concepts while exploring a new language at an accelerated pace. Students apply what they learn to build simple console-based games, algorithms, and real-world problems. This course is intended for high school students who have prior programming experience. We recommend CSR-300 (or equivalent) as a prerequisite. Prior completion of Algebra I is required. 9th graders and students who are unsure of their experience level should schedule a free consultation with the school before enrolling.
