Lesson 3 Variables

Curriculum > KS4 > Unit > Lesson

Learners will find out about variables during this lesson. They will learn about the purpose of variables but also the necessary technical aspects of creating variables to a uniform standard. Variable declaration is not used in Python so a wider look at this through other programming languages is given to allow learners to gain an insight into its meaning.

Learning objectives

  • Use meaningful identifiers
  • Determine the need for variables
  • Distinguish between declaration, initialisation and assignment of variables
  • Demonstrate appropriate use of naming conventions
  • Output data (e.g. print (my_var))
