OCR GCSE J277 Computer Science

Endorsed by OCR for full specification coverage.

Publication 30 March 2020.

Available in printed paperback format, or as a digital subscription edition

The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive and accessible text for students, covering Papers 1 and 2 in the latest OCR GCSE J277 Computer Science specification. It will be invaluable as a course text for students throughout the course. It is divided into eight sections, each broken down into manageable chapters of roughly one lesson. Sections 6 and 7 of the textbook cover algorithms and programming fundamentals with a theoretical approach to provide students with experience of writing, tracing and debugging pseudocode solutions without the aid of a computer. These sections would complement practical programming experience.

Each of the eight sections cover one of the major topics in this course, and each subtopic contains sample examination questions from past papers, which can be set as homework.

Solutions to all questions and exercises are provided in a free teacher pack available on our website.

To accompany this textbook, PG Online also publishes a series of eight comprehensive teaching units. Each topic offers a complete solution including a fully illustrated PowerPoint presentation, teacher’s notes, worksheets, homework sheets and a final assessment test with practice examination questions. Each topic within a unit is expected to be taught over one or more lessons in a week. Units are sold as a lifetime site licence and may be loaded onto the school’s private network or VLE.
