Today's Lesson: 3.4 - Repeating Code

What if you need a block of code to happen repeatedly? Perhaps you are asking the user for a number and they keep entering text (or nothing at all). In programming, this is called a loop. There are three basic loops and today we will discuss two of them: While and Do While.

In-class demo on While Loops will be found here.
