Python videos | Python Part 3 - Ranges, loops and formatting
Posted by Andy Brown on 05 September 2021
This video explains how to create loops which execute while a particular condition is true (and how to break out of these loops), how to print messages more neatly and how to use ranges to loop over sequences of numbers.

After watching this video, you may like to test your understanding by doing one or more of the following exercises:
You can also download the answers to each exercise from the links above.
Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
