Description

There are many reasons that you would need to use numbers or complex math in a software development scenario. For example, Python can be used to:

  • Quickly count currency
  • Calculate camera aperture
  • Create fractals
In this course, The Numeric Tower, Conversion, and Operators, you’ll learn how numbers work behind the scenes.

First, you’ll explore the built-in number types.
Next, you’ll discover how the operators work.
Finally, you’ll learn how to implement operators on your objects.

When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of numbers and protocols needed to leverage operators and custom classes.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Matt Harrison. Welcome to my course core python, numeric. Our conversion and operators. I'm a python and data science author, corporate trainer and consultant at Meta Snake. I've been using python since the year 2000, and I'm excited to drop some python knowledge bombs. Python is probably the most popular language at the moment. This course is a quick introduction to numbers theory behind floating points and implementing your own objects to respond to math operations in Python. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the idea of a new Mount Tower Pythons, implementation of the numeric, our additional numeric types. They're included in the standard library and developing objects that support math operations. By the end of this course, you'll know how Python works behind the scenes to support math. You'll also have an intuition of when to use floating point numbers and when to use decimals. I hope that you'll join me on this journey to dive into pythons numeric types with the core python, the numeric tower conversion and operators course after world
