Paste your program here, and describe how you're trying to run it (in IDLE, from the command line, or what)

Do you have Python version 2.x or the latest version 3.x? The course uses version 2, and the most immediate difference between them is the syntax of the "print" command. Version 3.x wants you to use parenthesis, so print("hello") rather than just print "hello". Although if you are following the course, the best solution is probably to go back to python.org and install version 2.7
