Summary

This unit is subdivided into seven lessons (plus a test) in order to fit with most school timetables. It is a theoretical unit covering all of Topic 1: Problem solving of the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Computer Science specification (1CP1). Lessons on developing algorithms using flowcharts and pseudocode and followed by one on interpreting and correcting algorithms. Standard searching and sorting algorithms are then covered, before a lesson on choosing and evaluating algorithms. The final lesson recaps the concepts of computational thinking; abstraction, decomposition and algorithmic thinking.

What's included in the toolkit?

Toolkit

What people say...

Many thanks for continuing to improve and expand your excellent resources. I can’t begin to add up the time it has saved us.

Jules Hazzledine. Head of ICT & Business Studies, William Farr School

The units we have ordered are proving really useful and helpful with development of materials for new specs.  The Maths for D&T have been particularly helpful.
