Repetition structures allow the same piece of code to run multiple times. Two repetion structures in Python are for loops and while loops. For loops run a set number of times. While loops run as long as a specific logical condition is true.

By the end of this chapter you will be able to:

  • use a while loop

  • use a for loop

  • use the break statement

  • use the continue statement

  • construct flowcharts that describe programs with loops
