Using This Book
Throughout this book, you will find a variety of different sections and practice exercises. We are writing this guide to help you make the most of the book.
Many pages end with a “Check Your Understanding” header. This section is full of questions for you to double check that you understand the concepts in the reading. Although your score does not count towards your final grade in the class, you should use it to help evaluate your understanding of the main concepts. After you read the chapter, you will take a quiz in Canvas that includes all of these questions.
Examples are times when we tie a concept we have just learned to a potential real world application.
The label “Try It” signals an example that includes code you can modify and augment to quickly reinforce what you have just read. Open up your code editor and play around with these!
Occasionally, you will find a link to another resource. While not required reading, these additional resources can boost your learning with videos, other examples, and more information about the code.
