Python Project: Building Complex Calculator
Python Project: Building Complex Calculator, Learn how to build complex calculator with Python.
Welcome to Python Project: Building Complex Calculator course. This course was designed and intended for Python beginners who want to build up their programming portfolio as well as improve their Python programming skills. This course is actually going to be a guided project based course instead of a regular course where you can expect step by step guidance from setting up your IDE all the way to finalizing and testing the calculator. Here, in this course, you will learn Tkinter which is a Python library designed for creating simple GUI (Graphical User Interface) and the calculator will be built based on Tkinter. Hence, you will be trained on how to create buttons, connect the buttons which you have created with functions where every single time the user clicks on that button, the calculator will perform as being commanded by the corresponding function as well as creating input box where it is basically a place where the user can input data/information to the calculator. At the end of the course, I will also guide you step by step on how to upload your project on your Github account.
Regarding the calculator, the reason why I called it a complex calculator is the fact that it has way more functionalities compared to the regular calculator with mainly addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division buttons. As matter of fact, the complex calculator that you are going to build in this course will include following functionalities:
- Sin, Cos, Tan, Csc, Sec, Cot (trigonometric functions)
- Sin^-1, Cos^-1, Tan^-1 (trigonometric inverse functions)
- |x| absolute value
- X^2 and x^3
- x^-1 inverse
- ! factorial
- x^(½) square root
- e^x exponential function
Although there are a lot of functions that we will create, there is nothing you should worry about since I will guide you step by step on how to write the code and even explain each code line by line with the intention that you understand the concept behind each line of code. Last but not least, we will also conduct a testing phase in order to make sure the calculator that we built has been functioning as expected. In conclusion, this course will teach you all the basics of Python programming through building this project, as many people say, the most effective strategy to master a new thing is to learn by doing and that is exactly what we do in this course, learning Python and Tkinter by building a project.
