Welcome to Week 3! This week we'll be introducing how to work with user input and making decisions within our programs. These "decisions" are known as branching statements or conditionals. If you think of your life every day, you make decisions based on specific conditions without knowing, such as when to get up in the morning, what to have for lunch, when to eat, etc. These are known as branching statements. The same applies in programming, where we need to have the computer make decisions.
