Generators in Python

Learn how to use generators in Python. This video covers two types: Generator Functions and Generator Expressions. Generator functions use the “yield” keyword, while generator expressions look like a “tuple comprehension.” Generators are a powerful and efficient tool for use when looping over large amounts of data.

Iterators, Iterables, and Itertools in Python

For-loops in Python do a lot of work for you. By learning how iteration works, you will be able to add iteration to your own classes and create custom iterable objects. Python also gives you an “itertools” module which contains a lot of convenience functions to save you time and streamline your code.

Python Tutorial on Recursion, the Fibonacci Sequence and Memoization

Socratica explores recursion by writing a function to generate the terms of the Fibonacci sequence. We will use a technique called “memoization” to make the function fast. We’ll first implement our own caching, but then we will use Python’s builtin memoization tool: the lru_cache decorator.

What is Abstract Algebra?

Socratica explores Abstract Algebra. What is Abstract Algebra? Abstract Algebra is very different than the algebra most people study in high school. This math subject focuses on abstract structures with names like groups, rings, fields and modules. These structures have applications in many areas of mathematics, and are being used more and more in the […]
