eduSTEMlab: Jeida’s Age Calculator
January 17, 2021
Jeida created an age calculator using python variables, and arithmetic operators. Using arithmetic operators to subtract the year of birth from the current year, an age calculator can be used calculate the current or the future age of anyone
She was able to show how to create variables and data, she also mentioned the rules guiding naming variables (no space in between, no keywords, no special keys allowed etc) She proceeded to explain why some data have to be enclosed in quotation marks. Jeida also made use of the input statement, used to request users responses in Python. She also mentioned why she created a new age variable to subtract the date of birth from the current year.
The most important part of coding is debugging and Jeida showed her skills in locating errors in her code. Well done Jeida!
