Summary

This unit contains ten topics each guiding GCSE students through the essential programming skills required to develop their own practical projects with success and competence. The unit assumes little prior experience of Python and gradually builds up proficiency in ten key skill areas including file handling, validation and working with lists. The practical application of each of the skill areas covered will also assist students with their understanding of the theoretical examination questions required of all the (9-1) GCSE and IGCSE specifications.

The unit concludes with exemplar solutions to five projects which each demonstrate different applications of the major skills commonly required at this level.

What's included?

The Python skills unit has been written to satisfy the core skills required for the Computer Science GCSE. This unit contains:

  • PowerPoint slides for each lesson
  • Detailed lesson plans
  • Learning objectives and outcomes
  • Worksheets and homework activities with answers
  • Over 20 sample Python programs
  • Five exemplar project solutions

What people say...

I have found PG Online resources not only time saving, but also comprehensive – following the specification of the GCSE and A-Level courses that I teach. They are engaging for students and with the added bonus of homework’s and end of unit assessments planned out. The textbooks are also the perfect companion. I cannot recommend PG Online resources enough.

Phillip McKenzie. Head of Computer Science, The King’s School

As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically.
