In this project, you will work individually to write programs which demonstrate your
understanding of Functions and Repetition Structures, in Python programs.
Content and Structure:
You will have to write two programs that:
1. Use simple functions which passes on user inputs to a function which performs
the operation and returns the result which will be displayed on the console.
2. Use while (condition controlled), for (count controlled) loop in programs, or
The student must be able to explain the working of the program and its logic.
Program should be indented, proper comments should be given, variable
names and data types should be chosen appropriately.
The program should compile and execute to display the result.
The student must use programming constructs available in Python and follow
Two program files must be uploaded.
The first program must accept inputs from a user, performs an operation using a
user-defined function which will accept parameters and return result displayed on
The second program must accept inputs from a user, repeats a sequence of
instructions a certain number of times, or until some specific result is achieved.
Follow coding standards, naming conventions for variables and functions.
Students will be asked to explain the working of their program and the logic
Program files must be submitted for the assessment through the Assessment 1
B Turnitin link on Moodle page for this unit.
The assessment will be submitted through Turnitin via your unit page on
Turnitin is a plagiarism software, which will identify if you have copied
information and included it in your assessment.
Copying information from others (i.e. websites, partner company information, or
other students etc.) without the acknowledging the author is classified as
Engaging someone else to write any part of your assessment for you outside of the
group work a
angement is classified as misconduct.
To avoid being charged with Misconduct, students need to submit their own work
and be able to explain the program logic and its working.
The AIH misconduct policy and procedure can be read on the AIH website
Any assessment submitted past the specific due date and time will be classified as
Any Late submission will be subject to a reduction of the mark allocated for the
assessment item by 5% per day (or part thereof) of the total marks available for the
assessment item. A ‘day’ for this purpose is defined as any day of the week
including weekends. Assignments submitted later than one (1) week after the due
date will not be accepted, unless special consideration is approved as per the
Students whose ability to submit or attend an assessment item is affected by
sickness, misadventure or other circumstances beyond their control, may be
eligible for special consideration. No consideration is given when the condition or
event is unrelated to the student's performance in a component of the
assessment, or when it is considered not to be serious.
Students applying for special consideration must submit the form within 3 days of
the due date of the assessment item or exam.
The form can be obtained from the AIH website (https:
students/student-forms/) or on-campus at Reception.
The request form must be submitted to Student Services. Supporting evidence
should be attached. For further information please refer to the Student Assessment
