Understanding parameters and how they are used can be frustrating. It’s an essential part of programming, and if you don’t take the time to master it, your code will be forever hindered, and you will be banging your head against your keyboard indefinitely until you rage quit technology. In this post I will discuss what parameters are, how they are used, and the difference between formal, and actual parameters.
This week in school, our discussion assignment was to discuss the importance and advantages of using functions in programming. I’ve been using Khan Academy for about 6 months now for studying math, and computer science outside of school, So I’ve seen a lot of beginners on the site who don’t understand the purpose of using functions. Hopefully this article sheds a little light on this topic for those who also don’t understand.
