Methods and Functions in Python

Sairam Uppugundla distinguishes methods from functions in Python:

Function and method both look similar as they perform in an almost similar way, but the key difference is the concept of ‘Class and its Object’. Functions can be called only by its name, as it is defined independently. But methods cannot be called by its name only we need to invoke the class by reference of that class in which it is defined, that is, the method is defined within a class and hence they are dependent on that class.
