Questions

  • How can I do the same operations on many different values?

Objectives

  • Explain what a for loop does.

Key Points

  • Use for variable in sequence to process the elements of a sequence one at a time.
  • The body of a for loop must be indented.
  • Use len(thing) to determine the length of something that contains other values.
