Python Challenge Solution

"For_ in _ " loop issue

To solve the challenge it requires knowing how to use a "for_in_" loop, however it isn't until the next video AFTER the challenge that we are taught this. The order should be adjusted so the iteration video after the challenge is placed before the challenge.

I agree with Michael, I started wondering if i missed a lesson somewhere. Instead of focusing on the task i was preoccupied with possibly having missed a lesson somewhere and then wondering if there was anything else i missed. If it were designed for us to research and solve these issues on our own then it should be mentioned somewhere in the instructions.

I believe this is a practice workshop, so they haven't listed the prerequisites and perhaps that should change, I would recommend you follow the python basics track and complete some of that before you go for the practice workshops, so that way you can know you have learned these skills and you can practice them then.
