Areas Covered

This unit consists of six topics, each more substantial than a single lesson and intended to be covered over the course of a week.

  • Topic 1: The IDE and programming basics
  • Download sample lesson above
  • Topic 2: Selection
  • Topic 3: Iteration
  • Topic 4: Subroutines
  • Topic 5: Recursion
  • Topic 6: Use of object-oriented techniques
  • End of unit assessment

There are six worksheets, six homework tasks, and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.

Summary

This unit covers the use of an IDE to develop/debug a program, and the fundamentals of programming including recursion and the concepts of OOP, while recognising that some students may have had little previous experience of programming and others will already be seasoned programmers. It covers Section 2.2.1 of the OCR H446 Specification.

No one programming language is taught, leaving this choice up to the teacher. These theory lessons could be run in parallel with practical programming sessions, and it is recommended that students code the pseudocode solutions that they write to give extra experience in practical programming.  

What's included in the toolkit?

What people say...

The graphics are excellent which will help the students understand the links between different aspects of computer hardware.  I particularly like the example answers which clearly illustrate where marks can be achieved.

I have ordered numerous materials from PG Online and they have been a massive help in preparing and delivering the new A level Computer Science course in my school. The Powerpoint resources per lesson were the world to me, as my team were then able to hit the ground running.
