Shuffling a 2D Array


For this challenge we will investigate how to create a 2D array to store the value from 1 to 100 in a 10×10 array. We will then write an algorithm to shuffle the content of this array. See the code

Shuffling Algorithm


Our aim is to implement a shuffling algorithm to shuffle a deck of playing cards. To do so, we will use a list called deck to store the 52 cards of the deck as follows: Even though the random library

Higher or Lower Number Game


For this challenge you will design and write a program to play against the computer. The computer will display a random number between 1 and 100. The user will have to try to guess this number. For each guess the

School Trip Bus Quote


A school teacher is organising a school trip for the whole year group. He expects between 250 and 350 students to attend this trip. To estimate the cost of the trip, the school teacher has contacted a coach company to

Word Unscramble Challenge


In this challenge, we will create a Word Unscramble quiz where the computer will randomly pick up words from a given list, scramble the letters of the word, output the scrambled word (anagram) and ask the user to guess the

Original Price Calculator


Shopping during the sales can sometimes be very confusing. With discounted prices at 10%, 20%, 50% or even 70%! For this challenge you are going to write a Python script that prompts the user to enter a discounted price in

Python Turtle – Protractor Challenge


Python Turtle? Let’s Recap! Looking at the following code can you explain the purpose of each Python Turtle instructions: turtle.color(“red”) turtle.forward(100) turtle.right(90) turtle.left(45) turtle.penup() turtle.pendown() turtle.goto(0,0) turtle.circle(50) turtle.setHeading(45) (X,Y) Coordinates? The canvas we are drawing on (using Python Turtle) is

Area Calculator Flowchart Challenge


In this challenge you will design an algorithm to calculate the area of various shapes as listed below: Shape Name Area Square width2 Rectangle width x length Circle pi x radius2 Triangle base x height / 2 Your algorithm should:

Min, Max, Mean, Median and Mod – Flowcharts


In this challenge we will design algorithms used to calculate the Min, Max, Mean, Median and Mod from a list of numbers. First you may want to refresh your maths skills and check the meaning of these terms: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/meanmode.htm MIN

Bidding Process – Flowchart


For this challenge we will consider the bidding process used within online auction websites such as eBay. Our aim is to create a system that will accept bids from the end-user, check if the bid being placed is greater than
