# Python Exercise Project: Comprehensive Python Concepts

In this exercise project, we will cover various important Python concepts. Each section will focus on a specific concept, providing explanations, code examples, potential errors, and hints to help you understand and apply the concepts effectively. Let’s dive in!

# Concepts Covered:

• Basic data types: int, float, str, bool, list

# Instructions:

1. Create variables of each basic data type: int, float, str, bool, list.
2. Perform operations and conversions using these data types.

# Example Code:

`# Basic Data Typesmy_int = 5my_float = 3.14my_str = "Hello, World!"my_bool = Truemy_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]`
`# Operations and Conversionsresult = my_int / my_floatint_conversion = int(my_float)float_conversion = float("2.5")str_conversion = str(42)rounded_value = round(3.14159, 2)`

# Concepts Covered:

• Operators: // (integer divide), ** (exponentiation)
• Static typing vs dynamic typing

# Instructions:

1. Perform arithmetic operations using the integer divide (`//`) and exponentiation (`*`) operators.
2. Observe the difference in behavior between static typing and dynamic typing when performing division (`/`).

# Example Code:

2. Perform rounding using the `round()` function.

# Example Code:

`# Data Type Conversionfloat_conversion = float(2)str_conversion = str(42)rounded_value = round(3.14159, 2)`

# Concepts Covered:

• List methods: len(), insert(), append(), pop()
• Slicing: [i:j:step]

2. Understand slicing and perform slicing operations on lists.
3. Explore list repetition using the `*` operator.
4. Compare the behavior of `sorted(my_list)` and `my_list.sort()`.

# Example Code:

# Example Code:

`# Please visit doctest documentation page from the link in descriptionimport doctestdef get_digits(number):    """    Returns a list of individual digits in the number.    >>> get_digits(12345)    [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]    """    return [int(digit) for digit in str(number)]# Run doctestdoctest.testmod()`
`# Please visit unittest documentation page from the link in description# Unit Testing with unittestimport unittestclass TestSomeName(unittest.TestCase):    def testSomething(self):        self.assertEqual(2 + 2, 4)        self.assertNotEqual(3 * 3, 7)unittest.main()# Run unit tests in notebookunittest.main(argv=[""], exit=False)`

# Concepts Covered:

• Class definition and instantiation
• Attributes and methods
• Data types: dict, str

# Instructions:

1. Create a class named `Student`.
2. Define the `__init__` method that initializes the student's name and an empty dictionary to store grades.
3. Implement the `add_grade` method that takes two parameters: `subject` (str) and `grade` (int). The method should add the grade for the given subject to the student's grades dictionary.
4. Implement the `get_average_grade` method. It should calculate and return the average grade for the student based on the grades stored in the dictionary.

# Example Code:

`class Student:    def __init__(self, name):        self.name = name        self.grades = {}    def add_grade(self, subject, grade):        self.grades[subject] = grade    def get_average_grade(self):        if len(self.grades) == 0:            return 0        total_grades = sum(self.grades.values())        average_grade = total_grades / len(self.grades)        return average_grade`

# Concepts Covered:

• Class definition and instantiation
• Composition (class within a class)
• Attributes and methods
• Data types: list

# Instructions:

1. Create a class named `Course`.
2. Define the `__init__` method that initializes the course's name and an empty list to store students.
3. Implement the `add_student` method that takes a `Student` object as a parameter and adds it to the course's list of students.
4. Implement the `get_student_average_grades` method that calculates and returns a dictionary containing each student's name and average grade.

# Example Code:

`class Course:    def __init__(self, name):        self.name = name        self.students = []    def add_student(self, student):        self.students.append(student)    def get_student_average_grades(self):        average_grades = {}        for student in self.students:            average_grade = student.get_average_grade()            average_grades[student.name] = average_grade        return average_grades`

# Concepts Covered:

• Creating objects
• Method calls
• Iterating over dictionaries

# Instructions:

1. Create instances of the `Student` class for different students and assign grades using the `add_grade` method.
2. Create an instance of the `Course` class.
3. Add the student instances to the course using the `add_student` method.
4. Call the `get_student_average_grades` method on the course instance to obtain the average grades for each student.
5. Display the students' names and their average grades.

# Example Code:

`# Creating students and assigning gradesstudent1 = Student("Alice")student1.add_grade("Math", 90)student1.add_grade("Science", 85)student2 = Student("Bob")student2.add_grade("Math", 75)student2.add_grade("Science", 80)# Creating a course and adding studentscourse = Course("Mathematics")course.add_student(student1)course.add_student(student2)# Getting average grades and displaying themaverage_grades = course.get_student_average_grades()for student, average_grade in average_grades.items():    print(f"Average grade for {student}: {average_grade:.2f}")`

# Error Handling and Potential Issues:

1. Empty grades dictionary: When calculating the average grade, handle the case where the student has no grades yet. Return `0` to avoid division by zero errors.
2. Missing attributes or methods: Ensure that you have defined all the necessary attributes and methods in the `Student` and `Course` classes as specified in the instructions. Check for typos and missing indentations.
3. Invalid input: Implement error handling for potential errors such as invalid grades or incorrect subject names. Use appropriate control flow statements (if-elif-else) to handle these cases gracefully and provide informative error messages to the user.
4. Missing students in the course: When calculating the average grades for each student in the course, handle the case where the course has no students yet. Return an empty dictionary or an appropriate message to indicate this situation.
