Summary

The unit is subdivided into five learning hours spread across five lessons, plus a test, in order to fit with most school timetables. The test is provided with IGCSE-style questions to assess understanding across all lessons in the unit. It is a theoretical unit covering the relevant sections of the Cambridge IGCSE® 0478 / 0984 and O Level 2210 Computer Science specification.

This unit builds on the fundamentals covered in the PG Online KS3 unit on Understanding Computers, (although understanding of this unit is not required), and then extends this knowledge to a level sufficient for examination purposes. The unit starts with two lessons on logic diagrams, logic statements and truth tables. In the next three lessons, students learn about the CPU and the many forms of memory available in modern computers including RAM and ROM. Secondary storage and their uses are covered in the final lesson.

What people say...

A generation ahead of everything else.  Perfect resources to give to non-specialists to deliver lessons with authority.

Don Jones. Assistant Principal: Achievement and Data, Ormiston Chadwick Academy

PG Online resources are very well planned and easy to use. Inspection copies are also useful as this enables me to make better choices with our limited budgets.
