Summary

This substantial unit is subdivided into eight lessons (plus a test). It covers the Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 GCSE (9-1) Computer Science specification 1CP1, Topic 2: Programming.  The first lesson in the 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...

This is such a steep learning curve, but PG Online materials have been great and really support me and my students.

The format and structure of material is logical and clear. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of Exam Tips which offer students important advise for the examination.
