This module covers some common built-in datatypes in python.

Understanding these datatypes is not only important for using python effectively, but also for understanding more advanced concepts of python’s type system.


After completing this module you will be able to:

  1. Create python variables

  2. Identify usages of basic python types, including:

    • Numeric types: int, float, complex
    • Boolean
    • Strings
    • Container types: list and dict
