Welcome!!! Today: 1) While loops vs for loops 2) Images!! Yippee!! Vocabulary: Definite Iteration – The number of iterations can be determined when the loop is encountered. (A for loop uses definite iteration – python only) Indefinite Iteration – the loop may iterate any number of times, dependent on a condition which must be continually checked. (this is what most loops are, while included) Infinite Loop – A loop whose condition never becomes false There are actually three parts to an indefinite iteration loop 1) Initialization – we set initial values to all variables used in the condition – this happens before we encounter the loop 2) condition – boolean expression used to determine whether the loop iterates again 3) change of state – within the loop, changing the variable values used in the condition name = input(“Please enter next name:”) # initialization while (not (name == ‘\n’)): # condition scoreList = gradebook[name] score = float(input(“Please enter score:”)) scoreList.append(score) gradebook[name] = scoreList

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
