Summary - 2019 Edition

The unit is subdivided into six lessons and a final assessment test, each occupying approximately one hour in order to fit with most school timetables. It is one of two units which together cover all of the material in Section 2 Practical Problem-solving and Programming in the IGCSE® 0478 / 0984 and O Level 2210 Computer Science specifications, designed to teach students the knowledge and skills that they will need to tackle exam questions on topics in this section. 

Ample practice in understanding and designing algorithms written in pseudocode or using flowcharts, debugging and testing is given in worksheets and homeworks. The unit is independent of any particular programming language but a basic knowledge and practical experience of programming in a language such as Python, Delphi or Small Basic will be useful and could be taught in practical sessions in parallel with this unit.
