The unit is subdivided into four topics and an end-of-unit assessment. Each topic may be spread over more than one lesson, especially if time is spent in the lessons going over homework tasks.

It is a theoretical unit covering the OCR Computer Science specification sections 1.2.3 (Software development) and 1.2.4 (Types of programming language). The first two lessons cover systems analysis methods and algorithm design. The next two topics cover programming paradigms, assembly language and an introduction to the main concepts of object-oriented programming.
