Unless told otherwise, you should always adhere to the|
following guidelines when creating your Python programs:
1) Use the CodeHS.com sandbox code editor to create all of your programs.
2) Use the default editor fonts and colors (including the white background).
3) Put your name (first and last), course name, color/period, date, and program
name in that order on the first five lines of every submitted file.
4) When using functions, put all of your functions together, before the 'main'
area of your program and the function calls.
5) Keep the 'main' area of your program sparse, putting most of your code into
6) Put a blank line between every function and between different sections of code.
7) Make sure each function has a single, clear, identifiable task.
8) Give every function a brief comment explaining its purpose.
9) Give every non-trivial/obvious variable a comment explaining its purpose.
10) Use descriptive, meaningful names for functions and variables.
11) Begin function and variable names with lowercase letters; additional words
in the names should begin with capitals.
12) Unless told otherwise, you do not need to error trap user input.
13) Make sure your programs are easily readable and understandable.
14) After completing each assignment, unless told otherwise, turn in a printout
of the file(s), making sure no lines of code automatically wrap to new lines.
If your printout consists of multiple pages, staple the pages together.
