Module 4: Object-Oriented Programming in Python

Objects and Classes

Learn the principles of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) in Python, including classes and objects. Understand how to define classes, create objects, and use them to model real-world entities.


Explore inheritance in Python, which allows classes to inherit attributes and methods from other classes. Understand how to create subclasses and superclasses to promote code reusability.


Understand encapsulation in Python, which involves bundling the data and methods that operate on the data within a single unit (i.e., a class). Learn how encapsulation promotes data hiding and abstraction.


Learn about polymorphism in Python, which allows objects to take on different forms or behave differently based on the context. Understand method overriding and method overloading as forms of polymorphism.


Explore abstraction in Python, which involves hiding the implementation details of a class and exposing only the essential features. Understand how abstraction simplifies complex systems by focusing on what an object does rather than how it does it.


Explore static methods and class methods in Python. Understand how static methods are bound to the class rather than instances and how class methods can be used to work with class-level variables and methods.
