Download the Mini-Lab documentation here
In this Mini-Lab, you will need to complete the following:
1. Debugging in Spyder.
- Open the debug_lab.py file in Spyder.
- Remove all existing variables. Use the debugger to explore all of the breakpoints in the file.
- Use the fast forward (>>) button to get to the breakpoint in line 24. Use the step button to execute the code. A value should now be assigned to the tot variable. Pause at line 25. While the program is paused, assign a new value to tot to see how you can edit the code here.
2. Debug the debug.py functions.
- Download the debug.py file.
- Run the program to identify errors and to debug the prorgram.
- Fix the errors and get the code to operate properly.
- Save the program
3. Provide an explanation of the errors and how you fixed them.
- In a Microsoft Word document, describe the errors you found in the program
- Also describe how you fixed the errors
- Save the document as debug_explanations.docx
- You can gain experience and knowledge of the Python Programming interface in the Unit 3 and 4 Lab sections or through the examples in the textbook(s)
- This assignment is worth 5 points and, combined with the first Mini-Lab, will be worth 1% of your overall grade
Your submission should include the following two files, uploaded in a single ZIP file:
Instructions for Submitting Your Project
- Create one (1) ZIP file that includes all of your project documents and files
- Use the following naming convention Your_Name-Assignment_Name-Date with the ZIP file extension
- Example: Instructor-Mini_Lab2-May_12_2016.zip
- Upload the single ZIP file below. Your project file must be fully uploaded before the deadline published in the course.
- If your coursework is submitted on time and correctly, the name of the uploaded file will be shown.
Note: Submitting more than one file will overwrite (delete) the previously submitted file. You may use a different program than Microsoft Word to describe the errors and fixes, but make sure to save the file with the .doc or .docx extension.
