A method in Python is similar to a function, in that it allows us to do things with data. However, a method is attached to what we call an object, which is a representation of data. Accordingly, a method operates as a function that is specifically available for that object. Methods are accessed through the dot syntax ..  For example, the method lower() can be attached to a string object like so: "HELLO".lower() and will return the string 'hello'.
