Lesson 3

L/O1 To develop your understanding of data types

L/O2 To develop your understanding of variables

Outcomes: You will start to store personal data using variables in Python


What is an integer? Can you come up with three examples of data which could be stored as an integer? 

Starter - 5 minutes

Just like Facebook stores specific data on you (name, birthday, phone number, etc), we will use Python to store data on us. But in order to store the data the computer needs to know the data type.
In teams, take a look at my data and see if you can match it to the data type using the helpsheet.

Q: What does variable mean?

Main Tasks - 45 minutes
