Summary

This unit is designed to cover all of the programming required for Paper 2. It contains questions and exercises that are in a similar format to those that students will experience in the practical examination. Completed and partial programming solutions in Python are provided to replicate the 'practical onscreen assessment' environment.

The first lesson in this unit covers data types and arithmetic operations. Sequence, selection and iteration are covered in the next two lessons, followed by lessons on arrays, subprograms, errors and testing, user input and validation. The final lesson covers reading from and writing to a text file.

Although the lessons can be delivered without students having to use computers, they will benefit from translating their pseudocode solutions to program code and testing them. All the worksheets contain exercises which provide opportunities for practical programming in the language of choice. Sample solutions are provided in Python to many exercises.

What people say...

I get offered probably every IGCSE, OCR and AQA resource pack out there and have seen most. I can tell you without doubt yours are the best. Your resources are head and shoulders above the rest.

Kieren Reynolds. CAS Master teacher and teacher, Henry Beaufort School

I really like your resources that are engaging and challenging for students at every level. Your lesson plans are in detail, showing very clear differentiation. I will highly recommend you to any teachers who are looking for dynamic and relevant SOW.
