Python – Practical Task

Lesson Aim

  • Use python skills gained to create a program to produce a solution
  • Design and implement a python program


How do we design a program.  Identify the variables, create an algorith and then produce the program

Main Task

Create a program which requests the length of the Opposite and adjacent sides of a right angled triangle and the calculates the Hypotenuse using the pythagoras theorem.


Modify your program to allow calculation of the other two sides.


Review how to design a program – identfy variables and then  produce code
