Unit 1 - Introduction to Python and Arduino
The purpose of this unit is to introduce you to the basics of creating circuits with an Arduino micro-controller and the basics of programming Python.
Pre-Lab Week 1 - Arduino Check
- Before the first class, please purchase an Arduino and perform the Pre-course Setup.
All analysis in this class will be done using the Python programming language. To keep the data and code centralized, we will be storing the code on Google Drive and compiling it with the Colaboratory Jupyter notebook compiler.
Consult the pre-course setup for instructions on how to run the Jupyter notebooks. Go over the "Basic Programming" video lectures and the supplemented Tutorial notebook. There is no submission required for the first pre-lab.
- Tutorial notebook - Basic Programming
- Video Lecture - Basic Programming
- Video Lecture - Basic Programming continued
Lab Instructions 1A - Introduction to arrays and plotting in Python
Python lecture videos and practice notebooks
The tutorial notebooks below go over important concepts in Python that you will be using throughout the quarter. These notebooks are supplemented by short video lectures. These are optional to those who are proficient with the listed concepts in Python. There will be no portion of the "Tutorial notebooks" turned in, but the concepts and syntax are important to understand (you have gone over most of these concepts in Lab 1A).
