Summary

This is a theoretical unit covering all of Topic 1: Computational thinking of the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Computer Science specification (1CP2). The first lesson introduces the concepts of computational thinking; abstraction, decomposition and algorithmic thinking. Lessons on developing algorithms using flowcharts and pseudocode are followed by one on interpreting and correcting algorithms. Standard searching and sorting algorithms are then covered, before a lesson on choosing and evaluating algorithms.

What people say...

PG Online have some excellent materials that have allowed us to create a structure for our teaching. We use units that help us to prepare our students all the way from Year 7 to a GCSE in Computing and their units allow us to do this effectively.

Stuart Smith. Head of Computing, The Castle School

I’m so impressed with the OCR Computer Science books that’s all I now teach from. We have purchased all our students the revision booklet and the exam one!
