Summary

The unit is subdivided into six topics, expected to be taught across roughly six weeks of lessons, plus a test, in order to fit with most school timetables. It is a theoretical programming unit covering the relevant sections of the AQA AS Level Computer Science specification. The unit is designed to allow AS students to be taught at the same time as students taking the full A Level.

This unit is divided into six topics, each corresponding to a chapter in Section 1 of the textbook AQA AS Level Computer Science. It introduces pseudocode and its application to the design of simple algorithms, as well as basic programming techniques in a procedural high-level language. This unit can be taught in parallel with practical programming lessons and will provide plenty of practice in writing and interpreting pseudocode algorithms.

What's included in the toolkit?

The AS Level units have been written to satisfy the specification for Paper 1 and Paper 2 of the AQA 7516/7 Computer Science AS/A Level. Each unit contains:

  • PowerPoint slides for each topic
  • Detailed lesson plans
  • Learning objectives and outcomes
  • Worksheets and homework activities with answers

I'm almost tempted to buy your [A Level] resources but we don't have a 6th form! They look good!
