March 2nd Reflection

For the past weeks I gave it my all. Two Weeks Ago I found a website called tutorial points which really helped me reach my goal and even surpass it. I wanted to have been done with this course by the time of my next reflection but I never seem to understand how in-depth these courses are. The coding has become so long that in a whole class I finish about 6 or 7 codes. The average amount is around 15 to 18 coded to increase your percentage and move on to the next lesson. I will want to take help from some more outside sources or Mr. Miller because at this rate it will take me a while to finish this course. The codes I have been doing are becoming extremely long and harder by the minute. I will definitely spend some time looking for outside sources which may take a while but will definitely boost the amount of coding I get done per class period.

Example of Long Code:

def hotel_cost (nights):
return 140 * nights
def plane_ride_cost (city):
if city == “Charlotte”:
return 183
elif city == “Tampa”:
return 220
elif city == “Pittsburgh”:
return 222
elif city == “Los Angeles”:
return 475
def rental_car_cost (days):
if days < 3:
return 40 * days
elif days > 6:
return 40 * days – 50
return 40 * days – 20
def trip_cost (city, days, spending_money):
return rental_car_cost(days) + hotel_cost (days) + plane_ride_cost (city) + spending_money

print trip_cost (“Los Angeles”, 5, 600)

As of now I am at 57% and I would like to be at 75% by next reflection time. I believe this is a hard goal to achieve but if I spend my class time with more coding and a little less socializing and especially if I fins some good outside sources I may be able to achieve this goal.

  1. Nice, Aryan. Knowing how to estimate your potential progress accurately is a great skill to develop and you’re getting plenty of practice at that here. 🙂

    Do feel free to ask questions! Even though I sit at my desk looking busy, I am here to ask and want to coach any time you feel you’d like it. I mostly stay out of everyone’s way because you’re all doing pretty well without me butting in. But I do like to help, too!

    One thing I do a lot when I’m coding in an area I don’t yet know well is do google searches along the lines of “python syntax NNN” where NNN is the command I’m trying to figure out. This usually brings up a resource where I can read about how to write that command or function correctly. I also use StackExchange to look up suggestions – these are usually more specific than the syntax pages, so less generalizable usually, but sometimes specific help is better.

    Also, have you checked out these?:*
