Unit 12: OOP and functional programming

AQA Paper 2



The unit is subdivided into six topics plus a test. It is a theoretical unit covering all of sections on Object-oriented programming, 4.12 on Fundamentals of functional programming and 4.11 on Big Data. The first two lessons cover the basics of object-oriented programming and object-oriented design principles, with practical examples in Python and VB.net.

The three following lessons take the form of a tutorial in Haskell, a functional programming language, accompanied by theory to enable students to answer exam questions on this topic.

The final lesson describes examples of Big Data, its application and benefits in areas such as healthcare and medicine, business, communication and many other fields.
