Summary

This unit is subdivided into six topics spread across six lessons, plus a test, in order to fit with most school timetables. Each comprehensive lesson contains a worksheet to be done in class to consolidate students’ knowledge and understanding, as well as a homework sheet to give them plenty of practice in answering exam-style questions. The conversion of integers from denary to binary is covered in the first lessons, together with simple binary addition, overflow and shifts. In subsequent lessons, the use of hexadecimal numbers and the binary representation of characters is described. Representation of images and sound, and compression techniques are covered in three separate lessons. In the final lesson students sit an assessment test comprising questions similar to those found on the OCR exam paper.

I’ve particularly liked your Python unit which does a great job of breaking down the concepts needed to properly understand and succeed with the beginnings of a programming language.
