Create a program that asks the user for 10 numbers  (floating point). Store those numbers in a list. Show to the user the total, average and standard deviation of those numbers.


For the Python group, you want to be using Lists. For the C++ group you can do this with arrays or Vectors, but you will need to know eventually how to do both.

Once you have this working, change it so that users keep giving you values until they signal “no more values”. How would you implement this and in particular for the C++ group, how to you deal with an unknown size to your array during compilation?

What to Submit

As usual, create a blog post explaining what you did, where you found resources (books, videos, web pages, friends) to help you solve this. Remember to put the tag WSQ10 on your post so our blog hub picks that up.

You should include your code as a link to GitHub. You really should start using your GitHub repository now. If you need help on that, just ask Ken or your classmates.

If you have not seen my video yet about the GUI tutorial for GitHub, go check that out:

And of course, leave any questions here as well as asking those questions on Twitter with the hashtag #TC1017 so we all see your question posted there.
